Italy coach Cesare Prandelli says his team are determined to bounce back from their shock 3-0 friendly defeat to Russia and prove they are better than that.

"After a defeat the players just want to play to show other qualities," said Prandelli.

"They want to show that they have the right determination to be contenders at the Euros.

"That's the spirit we have now, obviously we've analysed our play and we've discovered this team has a great sense of responsibility.

"Where we've proposed a change in system they haven't just shown their availability, they've been enthusiastic.

"This team could even change its tactical system during a game."
