Prandelli ready to pull Italy out of Euros

01 June 2012 03:17

Cesare Prandelli says he would have no problem pulling Italy out of the tournament if that decision was taken to avoid tarnishing the image of the game.

Italy is being dragged through the mire once again due to a match-fixing scandal, in which first choice left-back Domenico Criscito was caught up leading to Prandelli ditching him from his tournament squad.

Since then Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci and goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon have also seen their names linked to the Calcioscommesse scandal.

"If it is decided that for the good of football the national team should not go to the Euros then that wouldn't be a problem," Prandelli told RaiSport.
