CAIRO: Italy youth coach Francesco Rocca is aware of the pressure his side will face when they play against U-20 World Cup hosts Egypt next month.

Rocca highlighted the importance of the fans backing to the Young Pharaohs in the last game of Group A, also including Trinidad & Tobago and Paraguay.

It won t be the most important but it will definitely be the most difficult, Rocca said in an interview with FIFA.com.

We will likely be playing in front of 100,000 fans in a cauldron-like atmosphere.

There will be real pressure on our shoulders but we will also be working on this aspect in our preparation.

The former Roma star also respects other opponents in the group, besides host nation Egypt.

It s an extremely tough one. The host country will be all fired up in front of their home crowd, Rocca added.

Paraguay are a very strong team, as they proved by knocking out the defending champions Argentina in the qualifiers. Trinidad and Tobago have great speed and will no doubt plan their game around that.
