thumbnail Hello,

Brazil star Robinho is eager to have a laugh at his former team mate Fabio Cannavaro's expense by scoring in tomorrow's Confederations Cup match against Italy.

Tomorrow night Brazil face Italy in their last group game of this Confederations Cup, needing only a draw to secure first place and avoid Spain in the semifinals.

One of the Selecao's stars, Robinho, who has already opened his account at this tournament with a goal against the USA in Brazil's second group game, has a special reason to leave his mark in the match against the Azzurri as well.

The Manchester City man can't wait come across his former Real Madrid team mate Fabio Cannavaro, with whom he played between 2006 and 2008, before making the move to Manchester.

"Tomorrow I hope to score and make fun of Cannavaro," Robinho said to Ansa.it.

"The principal objective of the Selecao is to win," he continued, on a more serious note.

"Playing well is not the priority: we can combine the two things, play with quality and give a sense of spectacle, outclassing our opponents. But if we aren't able to play well, it would still be important to win."
