Italy coach Roberto Mancini: Poland clash all about attitude

Italy coach Roberto Mancini says their clash with Poland will be all about attitude.

Mancini makes his competitive Azzurri debut in the UEFA Nations League tie.

“Obviously, there were strong sensations when I made my debut and tomorrow is the first official game, so clearly there is a special sentiment there," said the CT in his Press conference.

“I have already decided both the starting XI and the 23 for the full squad, but before telling you, I feel it is only right to talk to the players first. After I've told them, I can reveal the line-up to you tomorrow.

“I don't think the tactical system is as important as the attitude held by the team. It went pretty well with our friendlies in June. I do think the Nations League is a positive development, as it's better for the players to feel they are fighting for three points. It can help us to introduce young players on to the international stage."
