Prandelli reaches half century

Cesare Prandelli will celebrate his 50th game in charge of the Italian national side when they play Nigeria this evening.

Prandelli made his debut on the Azzurri bench on August 10, 2010, against the Ivory Coast in London – the same city as tonight’s test.

In Prandelli’s 49 games to date, he’s won 22, drawn 17 and lost 10 – although only two of the latter were competitive games against Spain at Euro 2012 and Brazil in the Confederations Cup.

His Azzurri have scored 76 goals in the process, conceding 51.

The former Fiorentina boss sits seventh on the all-time list relating to games in charge of the national side.

He is presently four behind Arrigo Sacchi and five shy of Azeglio Vicini.
