Italy coach Cesare Prandelli was left lamenting his side’s profligacy in front of goal after Thursday’s 1-1 draw against Croatia at Euro 2012.

Italy scored first thanks to a fabulous goal from Andrea Pirlo but allowed their opponents to equalise as they were held to their second 1-1 draw of the tournament.

“This was a great chance, we had the lead and we took few risks before Croatia’s goal,” Prandelli told Rai Sport after the match.

“We wasted some opportunities in the first half. After the restart, we did not press as much, but we showed a good balance.

“We are here and we will fight until the end. We must continue to believe.”

Italy will take on Republic of Ireland on Monday in their third and final Group C match.

Prandelli said there may be a few personnel changes for the clash, although he would not be changing his structures as Italy strive to qualify for the knockout rounds.

Italy have two points from as many games, while Spain and Croatia both have four points.

“I don’t know if I will change some things, as it depends on the fitness levels,” Prandelli said.

“Tomorrow we will evaluate everyone’s condition and if needs be I will make changes, but only in terms of personnel and not the system.”
