Ukraine No2 Tassotti: Italian football not as poor as it is painted

AC Milan legend Mauro Tassotti was impressed by Italy for their 1-1 draw with Ukraine.

Tassotti is Ukraine assistant coach to Andriy Shevchenko.

He said, "We had some difficulties in the first half, we were good and lucky, we grew in the second half, we drew and almost scored the second goal.

"Italy struggles to win at home? There are difficulties, but Italian football is not as poor as it is painted, Italian footballers know the tactics and they are also physically strong.

"(Roberto) Mancini must find the right team, these games also serve for this."
