Ventura admitted he wants to improve Italy's record against South American sides. “It’s an important test because Uruguay are a tough side for us, they’re not afraid of anybody. Therefore, I don’t think the discussion is of an ordinary friendly. There’s a will among the boys to play these games and to develop together. While they’ll deserve their holidays, they will all be focused."
Uruguay will want to bounce back from Sunday's 3-1 defeat to the Republic of Ireland. They will be without injured duo Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez though.
