World Cup winner Fabio Cannavaro: Italian football is 'behind in every conceivable area'

Speaking to Sky Sport Italia, legendary Italian centre-back Fabio Cannavaro said: "What frightens me is seeing the way this is being treated almost as if it's normal, people seem resigned to it. The system here does not work.

"We're not progressing in the European club competitions, nor with Italy, so something has to change. We are behind in every conceivable area. Just watching Portugal and Italy, the difference of the stadiums was remarkable.

"We keep going like this and don't realise that the others are going faster and we are no longer the best. We've got to wake up and do something. I'd like to work in Italy, but we need to do something about the infrastructure."

Italy are now set to miss two consecutive World Cups after suffering a shocking 1–0 defeat against North Macedonia at home in the playoffs last month.

Squadra Azzurra won the Euro 2020 tournament last month but the 2022 World Cup qualifiers revealed massive issues within Italian football.
