Midfield the key - Prandelli
Cesare Prandelli says Italy will look to attack Spain in Sunday's Euro 2012 final and feels central midfield will be the key area.
Under Prandelli, the Azzurri have been far more expansive and free-flowing than in previous tournaments, which was evident in the 2-1 semi-final victory over Germany.
The likes of Riccardo Montolivo, Claudio Marchisio and Daniel de Rossi have shone, while the experienced Andrea Pirlo has been arguably the player of the tournament.
The Azzurri coach feels one more big performance from that quartet could be good enough to secure the title in Kiev on Sunday.
Prandelli said: "I hope we can be positive and take the game to Spain. Our first aim will be to shut down space and win the ball.
"For us, it is important to remain focused on our target - close the space in the central midfield. Our central midfield has a lot of quality."
