Christian Maggio says Italy ready to face Armenia

PanARMENIAN.Net - Italian footballer Christian Maggio says that Italy are expecting a battle against Armenia who they still have to study.

The two teams meet in World Cup qualification on Friday, October 12 and the Napoli player is expected to start at right-back.

“There is a good chance that I’ll play and the whole team is ready to take part in a fierce and difficult encounter,” he said from the Azzurri’s Coverciano training base.

“We still don’t know too much about Armenia, but we will as there is still plenty of time before the match.

“A few days ago I spoke to my Napoli teammate Marek Hamsik who faced them last year. He told me that they are a side who work very hard,” football-italia.net quoted Maggio as saying.
