Italy takes on Haiti in the team’s final tune-up match before the Confederations Cup. The Azzurri are currently on track to earn a spot in next year’s World Cup, so the extra matches in Brazil will help the squad get accustomed to the surroundings.
They are coming off an acceptable, albeit frustrating, draw with the Czech Republic in qualifying. Italy remains atop UEFA Group B with four matches left to play. They can’t afford to overlook Haiti as Spain appeared to do over the weekend.
The defending World Cup champions were expected to cruise past the Grenadiers. Instead, Haiti held tough against a very strong Spanish squad and lost by just a single goal, 2-1. Italy should be seeking a far more comfortable result. via | Bleacher Report
