ROME - On for the second half in place of Obi, Yuto Nagatomo had this to say on the Nerazzurri's performance tonight: "The team has improved compared with recent matches but we still need to do more. We can do it because it's still all to play for with the score at 2-1. Cassano? I spoke to him on the phone and I think he could be back for Sunday. He told me he can't wait to get back playing."
Finally a word on Sneijder: "I spoke to him yesterday, I wish him all the best and I know we'll stay in touch."
