The Juventus player has recovered from injury: "I'm fine, I'm not afraid." And on the national team is convinced: "Debut difficult, but also Spain must be careful. And we will not do the barricades. Three-Defense? Will count only help in the field"
Chiellini has a craving for giocarselo, this European Championship. The defender of the National, having been afraid of losing him to injury, he enjoys the atmosphere of a major event that precedes the debut blue with Spain. It takes the best from all the experiences you are living in Poland, including the poignant lived in the morning with visits to the camps, which were concentration and extermination camps, Auschwitz and Birkenau. Then the Chiello not lean on the smash "4 defense or defense to three?", And brings out the pride when it comes to football player, or better to play: "Spain? We will not make the barricades, and in any case will not be easy even for them. "
AUSCHWITZ - "I think it was all emotion rather than touching. It 'hard to find words. We are a fortunate generation that these horrors have only read about or seen in movies. Listening to the three survivors is something that will stay in all of us. The image that remains in the eye the most is when they showed us the numbers tattooed on his arm and when we told of how a German doctor could decide in their lives when they arrive (by selecting those who were destined to hard labor and those who do the gas chamber, Ed.) He has left a unique feeling in our hearts. "
RACISM IN STAGES - "If I get angry after this visit even more? We are examples for young people, I hope this visit will serve to combat any form of disrespect or discrimination."
RECOVERY - "I'm fine, thank goodness. The injury was not as bad as feared, I had time to return to work with the team already last week. And this week I will need to finalize the details. But There is no fear, just want to begin the adventure. here has changed the atmosphere, it begins to breathe the competition, the enthusiasm that was here yesterday at the stadium can only make us well. "
THREE DEFENCE - "If the coach decides to do something, it is because we believe. De Rossi behind? It 's a great player. This year has also played in this position, which also is not his. Against Juve defender from Central was the best in the field. He has everything to do well in that role. The onset is always difficult, but against Spain even more. "
CHANGE AFTER TWO YEARS - Italy coach behind with Prandelli has always played 4. Now the meditator allenaotore tactical change, just the defense 3. "To say whether wrong or right before a match is always difficult. I do not think that Prandelli has already chosen to 200%. On our side there is belief in what we do. What will count in the field, beyond the numbers, will help: the desire and enthusiasm. "
LAST WEEK - "There were so many attacks, more or less justified, who sought to destabilize our environment. We are used to pressure, we found a way to isolate and work. If Italy is seen in the last 2 years gone? There was a decline in results since we achieved the target qualification for Euro 2012, but from here to say that Italy is gone ... ".
EARTHQUAKE, THE APPEAL - "I want to remember the victims of the earthquake in Emilia. not forget them. Send an sms to 45500."
SPAIN - "The European is shorter than the World Cup, but more difficult in some respects, the average level is very high. To stop players like Iniesta, Xavi and Silva does not suffice ppuò one player. The identity of the Spanish game disregards the interpreters. We are aware of meeting the team that made history in the last 4 years, gaining their belief against us, in Austria. We can not put us on the edge of our penalty area and then hope for a break. They will focus and respect, but also actions that characterize our rigged game. Even for them it will be difficult facing Italy. "
