The Independent Online
`Today, Italy is inferior to England. It doesn't have its sense of security, its control of play and not even - listen to this - its adaptability. The lions who once knew only how to launch the ball and run under it, tackle, cross and mix it up, now dribble with skill, take control of the action, take possession with elegance and look for the winning chance.'

Gazzetta dello Sport Sunday 12 October 1997
