Italy coach Cesare Prandelli is excited about the young team he is building.

Prandelli was speaking at an event in Pisa and spoke of the young players coming through Serie A.

"We did well to choose the path of renovation for Italy and the explosion of so many young talents confirms that," he said.

"The performances of Mattia De Sciglio, Lorenzo Insigne, Mattia Destro and Stephan El Shaarawy are clear for all to see. Now they must continue to work like this in order to grow definitively, then at the end you'll see they have the space they deserve."
