Piacenza: ‘No reason to panic’ over Italy loss

2.30pm: Italy coach Antonio Conte has said he is “sick” of the criticism surrounding the loss of his team in the Piacentini encounter.

In a radio interview with Radio La Repubblica, Conte said: “I’m sick of it.

I’m sick.

I think this team is tired of the comments.

The coach added: “It’s not fair to the player, the team, the fans, the country, but I’m tired of it.””

This is the way we do things, I think it’s the way it’s always been, and I think that’s the right way to play.”

The coach added: “It’s not fair to the player, the team, the fans, the country, but I’m tired of it.”

I think this is the most important moment in my career, I’m just not satisfied with the result.

I was not satisfied after the defeat against the US.

It was a very important game for us.

“When the team went out with a draw, it’s very clear to me that we have to work a lot harder to come back.”

Conte also said he had spoken to his players, but was “still not 100 per cent” sure if the defeat was due to poor performance, or the loss to the US in the World Cup qualifier. 

“I talked to the team yesterday, and we are all very tired, but it’s difficult to say,” he added.

“But this is how it is.

We’re all tired of this.

It is difficult for us to come out tomorrow and have a good result, because we’ve played in a tough game. “

It will be difficult for the players.

It is difficult for us to come out tomorrow and have a good result, because we’ve played in a tough game.

We had a very difficult game, but we have a great team.” 

The Bianconeri are yet to play in the final two rounds of the tournament, as they face Slovenia in the quarter-finals and Poland in the semi-finals.
