Antonio Conte: Italian football is on its way 'back to the top'

Antonio Conte is feeling positive about the state of the Italian game.

Italy coach Antonio Conte feels the Italian game is on the up once more.

While Serie A clubs dominated Europe for much of the 1980s and 1990s, in recent years they have fallen behind with the Italian top flight trailing behind La Liga, the Premier League and the Bundesliga.

However, Conte, buoyed by the performance of his former club Juventus in reaching last season's Champions League final and of other Serie A clubs who are starting to regain a competitive edge in Europe, says Italian football...

Mario Balotelli nutmegged by freestyle superstar Soufiane Touzani

Professional freestyler Soufiane Touzani turned up at Milan's training complex earlier in the week with one goal: to nutmeg Mario Balotelli.

As such, the pair agreed to engage in one-on-one combat out on the all-weather court, with each player attempting to be the first to stick the ball through the legs of the other to claim victory.

Balotelli adopted cagey tactics from the start, keeping his feet together in a desperate attempt to stop Touzani finding room to strike.

However, the defensive action...

Italy and Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon to retire after 2018 World Cup

The group stage draw did no favours for 2014-15 finalists Juventus.
Juventus and Italy keeper Gianluigi Buffon will turn 38 years old this week.

Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon intends to retire after the 2018 World Cup.

Buffon, who turns 38 this week, has represented his country a record 154 times and has made well over 500 appearances for Juventus, for whom he signed in 2001.

The World Cup winner is expected to keep goal at this summer's European Championship, but the World Cup in Russia -- should Italy qualify -- will be his last tournament with the Azzurri.

In quotes carried by Tuttosport, Buffon said: "Am I going to sign a new...

Antonio Cassano: Italy Euro 2016 recall is 'one in a billion chance'

Sampdoria striker Antonio Cassano last played for Italy at the 2014 World Cup.

Sampdoria forward Antonio Cassano has not given up on earning a recall to the Italy squad for Euro 2016, even though he admits his chances are "one in a billion."

Cassano, 33, last appeared for his country at the 2014 World Cup, and has only found the back of the net once for Sampdoria this season.

However, the Bari-born forward has been boosted by Italy coach Antonio Conte leaving the door for players to stake a claim, and he now has four months to find a way back for the Azzurri.

"Conte does not...

Carlo Tavecchio: Coppa Italia final date does not help Italy coach Conte

Antonio Conte has been backed by Carlo Tavecchio.

Italian Football Association president Carlo Tavecchio has accused the Serie A authorities of undermining Italy coach Antonio Conte by scheduling the final of the Coppa Italia for a week after the end of the league season.

Conte is reported to be furious at the decision to play the cup final on May 21 or 22, with the date dependent on whether one of the teams is also involved in the Europa League final.

He had been hoping to have his Euro 2016 squad assembled by that stage, but is now likely to...
