Cesare Prandelli has admitted he is wary of all three of Italy's potential quarter-final opponents.
Italy will discover on Tuesday night who they will play in Kiev on Sunday but the coach said he had no particular preference.
"They are three teams with different characteristics but they are all set up well," said Prandelli.
"The 4-2-3-1 that France play is very interesting and dangerous. They're a modern attacking team who don't give you a point of reference.
"They control the midfield and then push up. France are to be feared.
"England are finding the right equilibrium. We all know the English character, they never hold anything back but they also have some good fantasy players.
"Ukraine have good team spirit and they play good football."
