Chiellini: Italy have great strength
After becoming one of the first European nations to confirm their place at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini has insisted that despite their limitations the group as a collective can succeed.
“[Mario] Balotelli In the first half was unfortunate, but it is important that we won this match with his goal,” Chiellini told Rai Sport.
“It seemed a match that was cursed, but in the end we were able to reverse the situation and we are happy for the victory.
“It is a deserved qualification, we have gained it on the pitch.
“We know our limitations and our quality, on the pitch we always give our best.
“We are not the strongest national team at the individual level, but with the collective we always manage to do very well.”
