Giovanelli talks up Italian chances
Italian captain Massimo Giovanelli is confident that his side can cause a surprise at Twickenham on Saturday.
"England is out to win the World Cup, but we are here to trip them up," claimed the Narbonne flanker.
He believes that the Italians were unlucky in the last meeting between the sides when, controversially, an Italian try was disallowed.
"This is the time to cast our minds back to Huddersfield. I think that last year we deserved to win and had the referee allowed the try by Troncon, which TV proved to be good, the score could have been a lot different."
"We were hungry for revenge, and now the time has come to get even".
Giovanelli thinks that Italy's last training sessions were very good and everybody is now focused on getting their campaign off to a great start.
