Riccardo Montolivo says Germany and Spain should watch out, because Italy fear no team at Euro 2012.
Cesare Prandelli’s men take on their old rivals Germany on Thursday, but the 27-year-old, who will join AC Milan from Fiorentina this summer, has praised the Azzurri’s performances in the tournament so far, especially given that their build-up was marred by the Scommessopoli scandal.
He also said that despite Germany and Spain being favourites for the competition, Prandelli’s side are not afraid to take them on.
“We’ve played well in all of our games so far in the tournament,” he said.
“Now we will face Germany, probably the best team with Spain, but we will be ready to challenge them.
“We don’t fear anybody.”
Montolivo, who missed his penalty in the quarter-final shoot-out victory over England, is expected to keep his place in the Azzurri’s starting XI for the semi-final in Warsaw.
