Italy international Daniele De Rossi has called for improvement after being held by France at the weekend.
Italy tackle Ukraine on Wednesday and De Rossi wants the world champions to claim all three points in Kiev.
"We must improve otherwise we'll miss out on the Championships," said De Rossi. "We are risking missing out.
"It would be a really grave thing for us and for the whole of Italy. Now, it's the time to go to Ukraine and win.
"We must play better than Saturday. We must play better."
