Swiss coach Murat Yakin is delighted to be facing Italy, who represent “the home of tactical soccer”, and insists he is ready for whatever system Luciano Spalletti adopts.

“We did our homework, we didn’t just watch these three games, but also the previous ones. Italy can vary and play many different systems. They are the home of tactical soccer, and I really like the way they do things. They can defend collectively, all over the pitch, which is what Atalanta do, for example. We are ready and maybe we can surprise Italy too. We’re happy to play against Italy, we want to have an open, attacking approach. I don’t want to be drawn into who the favorite is. We know Italy’s strength. I hope we can have the same chance as our recent games. This week, we’ve had time to practise penalties, which obviously aren’t the same as in recent matches, but we all have the experience to take them. In any case, I don’t want to think about it until we get there,” declared the coach at his press conference.
