Claudio Marchisio expects Italy to put in a performance against Malta in tonight’s World Cup qualifier.
The Azzurri started their Brazil 2014 campaign with a 2-2 draw in Bulgaria on Friday, but the display has been heavily criticised.
La Nazionale will revert back to a 4-3-1-2 system in Modena and the Juventus man is pumped up to silence their critics.
“The point in Bulgaria will be worth something,” he stated. “But, against Malta, we will have to re-find that conviction and style of play which took us from a disastrous World Cup in 2010 to the Final of Euro 2012.”
