MILAN - Faroe Islands coach Brian Kerr has
accused former world champions Italy of giving his unheralded
side facilities suitable only for grazing sheep ahead of
Tuesday's Euro 2012 qualifier in Florence.
"The grass on our training pitch is so high that all the
sheep in the Faroes would take a month to eat it," former
Ireland coach Kerr told reporters on Monday.
The Faroes, who lost their opening two Group C games, were
training at Ponte a Niccheri south of Florence and Christian
Mouritsen is now doubtful for the game after injuring his ankle
on the pitch.
Italy, 2-1 winners in Estonia on Friday in their first
competitive game since being dumped out of the World Cup group
stage in June, always train at their nearby Coverciano base
which has some of the best facilities in world football.
