ITALY COACH CESARE PRANDELI DOESN'T HAVE A PROBLEM IF ITALY WITHREWS FROM EURO 2012 DUE TO MATCH FIXING SCANDAL

Coach Cesare Prandelli says he would not have a problem if Italy withdrew from Euro 2012 amid match-fixing allegations in the domestic league. 



Police made 19 arrests while Domenico Criscito was dropped after he was questioned at Italy's training camp.

Italian prime minister Mario Monti called for a suspension of football. 

Italy are in Group C with the Republic of Ireland, Spain and Croatia. Their first game is against current holders and world champions Spain on 10 June.

Monti said this week it might be better for football to take a break in the country until what appear to be deep-rooted problems with match-fixing are solved.

Prosecutors are studying suspicious results in 33 matches. 

The probe could lead to another damaging trial, similar to the one in 2006 that saw Juventus relegated to Serie B and other major clubs suffer points reductions.
