Italy have arrived in Portugal with coach Giovanni Trapattoni confident their injury problems have cleared up.

Lazio midfielder Stefano Fiore missed the friendly win over Tunisia with a thigh problem but he will resume training in Portugal, while defender Christian Panucci, who has been suffering from an Achilles tendon injury, is expected to be fit.

“I’m not that worried,” said Trapattoni of Panucci.

“He just needs time to rest.”
