Italy boss fed up with winless run

Italy boss Roberto Mancini says he is fed with his side's winless run following a 1-1 draw against Ukraine on Wednesday. 

Italy lastly tasted a win in May, beating Saudi Arabia 2-1 and the team has gone for five matches without a win. And Mancini said he is tired of not winning as the country's drought extended to five games against Ukraine. Federico Bernardeschi's 55th-minute opener was cancelled out by Ruslan Malinovskiy as Italy were held to a 1-1 draw by Ukraine on Wednesday.

"I'm fed up of not winning and so is everyone. The positive thing is that the team played good football for long periods," said Mancini. 

"It was a friendly, so hopefully we can start winning on Sunday. Its obvious fans are upset when their team doesn't win, but we mustn't listen to the jeers. If we had scored another goal, everyone would've been happy with the performance. I think it was just about the result," he added. 

UEFA Nations League

Italy will be taking on Poland on Sunday 14 before hosting Portugal three days later.
