Mancini: I'd like my Italy to face a doctors and nurses XI

Italy coach Roberto Mancini admits he has a plan to thank the health workers of Italy after their coronavirus crisis is over.

Mancini would like to organise a game between Italy's national teams and teams of the country's health workers.

He explained, "When this story is over I would like to organise a match between the national team, male or female, against doctors and nurses, perhaps in Bergamo, Brescia or Milan.

"Sooner or later normal life will have to start again: of course, it will be much more difficult especially in the beginning.

"The hope is that the good God will see what is happening and end this thing."
