The Italian Football Federation want Marcello Lippi to extend his contract as Coach of the Italian side.

FIGC President Franco Carraro is delighted with Lippi’s work since taking over the Azzurri and the recent 3-1 win away in Holland has strengthened his faith in the Viareggio-based tactician.

"Lippi has done very well," said Carraro. "If he wants to extend his contract beyond 2006 the Federation is hugely behind him.

"We are delighted to have qualified for the World Cup and we are satisfied with the way the Azzurri are preparing for it."

After the impressive win in Amsterdam, Lippi has won over numerous critics and Carraro clearly wants to keep his Coach in the long term.

For his part, Lippi doesn’t think anything will be decided before the World Cup Finals and played down any such theories yesterday.
