Italy coach Donadoni: It won’t be easy against the Faroes

    He said: “It is not David and Goliath, even if clearly there is a large difference in quality between the two squads.

    “I do not believe in ties that are easy on paper. Games like this have more hidden dangers than the biggest matches with the top teams.

    “Let us not forget that they created problems for Ukraine and Lithuania only won here at the 89th minute.

    “I want to see my team play the opening 20 minutes like they’re out for blood, because as time wears on, it plays more and more into the Faroe Islands’ hands.

    “They are a side that will attempt damage limitation, and will get more confident the longer they go without conceding, so we must put them under pressure from the very start.”
