Fazio: “We need 180 intelligent minutes against Villarreal.”


Federico Fazio was interviewed by Sky Sport today ahead of tomorrow’s Europa League clash against Villarreal:

Does Napoli have a chance tonight against Real Madrid?
Yes absolutely, Napoli is playing very well. In their last match, Real showed some problems. Napoli are a great team and can win.

What kind of team is Villarreal?
They are a team that plays very compact. They come out well from defending with all of their players. It will be a good match, we know that we will need 180 minutes where play with intelligence.

Their weak point?
We have to respect them, we know how they play. We know it’s an elimination round trip so we have to be confident to play our football.

Perhaps a future in the Italian national team?
I have a passport, the name and Italian blood. It would be a great honor to play for Italy.

You’ve already played with Argentina?
Only with the Under 20 team, in the Olympics and a friendly but no competitive matches.
