Italy coach Cesare Prandelli says his side is ready for Getrmany in the semis despite less recuperation time, he also says he was always confident of getting past England.
"I was not surprised we dominated. I knew we could control the game. But I was afraid of leaving them space at the back on counter-attacks. However, we held them at bay. The President (of Italy) called us to congratulate us. Now we need to be ready for the Germans. They'll be favourites. They'll have had two days rest more than us. But with the desire we showed today, we'll have a card or two up our sleeves," said Prandelli
