Milan, Dec 16: Despite having to play world champion Spain, Italy coach Cesare Prandelli says Croatia is the team he is more worried about in the Azzurri's difficult European Championship group.
In an interview on Rai2 on Thursday, Prandelli said “beware of Croatia, it's undervalued by others when instead it is a great team and it will be the most difficult game.”
Italy has also been pitted against Giovanni Trapattoni's Ireland in group play.
Italy qualified for Euro 2012 top of its group having won eight qualifiers and drawn the other two.
And Prandelli has high ambitions for next summer's tournament, adding, “I wouldn't settle for fourth spot. I want to dream, and we will go there with this dream.”
