Italy squad

Goalkeepers1 Gianluigi Buffon14 Marco Amelia17 Morgan De Sanctis
Defenders2 Christian Panucci3 Fabio Grosso4 Giorgio Chiellini5 Fabio Cannavaro6 Andrea Barzagli19 Gianluca Zambrotta23 Marco Materazzi
Midfielders8 Gennaro Gattuso10 Daniele De Rossi13 Massimo Ambrosini16 Mauro Camoranesi20 Simone Perrotta21 Andrea Pirlo22 Alberto Aquilani
Forwards7 Alessandro Del Piero9 Luca Toni11 Antonio Di Natale12 Marco Borriello15 Fabio Quagliarella18 Antonio Cassano

So, we all know how I feel about Del Piero... maybe he'll prove me wrong.
I'm quite happy that my De Rossi got the fabled number 10; I think that is sweet. But the talk of Pirlo being our "inspirational" player now that Totti is gone? Not so sweet.

Canna injured in the first training session! Eeeek! It doesn't look good as he was taken to the hospital.

Torn ankle ligaments - will miss the Euros - may need surgery, but apparently Real Madrid will make that decision. I'm gonna go cry now....

at least Zambo is in.
here's Cassano's big chance. i think this is where his shakey career can turn a corner and he can earn back the cred he frittered away on temper tantrums.

Forza Hotalia!

So it looks like Chiellini and Matrix in the back. I just hope Matrix doesn't lose it again. +(

What are the chances that Materazzi does NOT get a red card in a major tournament??
