Cesare Prandelli, the coach of the Italian national squad, has confirmed that he will make several changes to the Italy XI when they play Armenia tonight.
The Azzurri face the Armenian team in Naples on Tuesday in their final World Cup qualifier, football- italia.net says.
The Coach though, has admitted that he will make some alterations to the team but wants a win to end qualification well.
"It's going to be a tough game," he told reporters. "We have to win to stay seeded for the next round of qualifiers, so three points are a must for me.
"There are going to be several changes, but I want the boys to play a smart game and for them to justify my faith in them.
"We have an obligation to play well, because Armenia have the chance to get to the play-offs.
"They've got some great players, especially on the counter-attack and with long balls.
Who will take the second place in the Group B? This question is one of the key intrigues of the WC 2014 qualifiers. At once four teams claim that place. The Bulgarian and Danish teams have by 13 points. Armenian and Czech teams have by one point less. So, to hope for the play-offs, Armenia needs to at least beat Italy. International bookmaker offices are taking bets on the Italian team's victory at odds of some 1.33. Last Friday, the Armenian national squad won 2:1 the Bulgarian team in Yerevan.
