The last pre-World Cup match has been more positive than the previous two, in fact Prandelli’s guys beat the Brazilian team Fluminense with a convincing 5-3.
The offensive actions seemed more fluid and the performance of the forwards have astounded everyone. Especially Immobile and Insigne have played very well. The new Borussia Dortmund player, Immobile, scored three goals and the guy from Naples two.
At this stage Prandelli should be strong enough to leave Balotelli on the bench, at least for the beginning of the first match of the World Cup against England. However, for the moment, the Italian coach stated:
“We are in good shape”…
…Now we should hope that the players in good shape are those who are going to play against England. Many times the Italian coach made decision on the basis of the name rather then on the performance on the pitch.
