Juventus striker Vincenzo Iaquinta is confident the goals will flow for Italy against New Zealand today.

Italy look set to field the same starting XI that drew 1-1 with Paraguay, but with Claudio Marchisio out wide in a 4-4-2 and Iaquinta partnering Alberto Gilardino.

“In the last 20 minutes with Paraguay we did very well, so the 4-4-2 is perhaps a more complete system that gives us solidity,” said the versatile Juventus forward.

“At the start of the game we played more down the left, as Simone Pepe was in great shape.”

Iaquinta had a mixed response wide right in a 4-2-3-1 tactic and is looking forward to helping Gilardino end his goal drought.

“Gilardino is not in crisis. Someone who has scored more than 100 goals in his career cannot have that problem, as he always finds the net sooner or later.”
