Italy v Austria: What has been said?

Roberto Mancini insists winning trophies is more important than achieving records as Italy look to keep their fine form going.

The Azzurri are unbeaten in 30 matches, matching their record set under two-time World Cup winning coach Vittorio Pozzo between 1935 and 1939.

Mancini said: “It’s nice to have equalled a legend like Pozzo. But he has more important trophies than the 30 games.

“In the European Championship there’s France, Portugal and Belgium – one of those are world champions, another are European champions and the other are the number one ranked side in the world.

“These are teams who have been built over a number of years and it’s only natural they are further along than us but everything can happen in football, you shouldn’t take anything for granted.

“Every match is difficult, you always have to go out there and play. I’ve been fortunate in that I have had some very good players who like playing the game, they enjoy being out there and like taking risks.

“The players are the ones who deserve the credit. I try to explain my thought process and there is still a long way to go.”
