My current ideal formation
Buffon
Maggio-Barzagli-Chiellini-Criscito
Pirlo
De Rossi------Montolivo
Giovinco
Balotelli/Cassano - Di Natale/Cassano


I wish they keep Cassano fitness, he can't start in every match.





We should add more Italian to our squad, the likes of Criscito, Giovinco, Cigarini, Diamanti are worthy to wear Milan shirt.

My god what a crappy and random collection. Italy continue being unattractive since the confederations cup 2009. And no, it's not because of the pool of players, it's because of the terrible selections.

Prandelli has been doing a weird job so far.

Howcome Matri didnt make it? I think he was victimized by Conte, when he was peaking, he was benched.

and Pepe is a handy player

Meh, I like Aquilani as a player, but he has done nothing this season to deserve a call up. Players like Motta, Marchisio, Nocerino, Pirlo and even Montolivo did much much more to get the call.

But why Giaccherini is called up is a complete mystery to me. He maybe had two or three good games this whole year.

His form pre-injury? And you can name a few others, but don't say all called up mids are better picks than Aquilani.

As much as I would like to see him start... there is no way Abate will play over Maggio. At least not at the Euro. And I think Maggio deserves starting spot more than Abate.

I want to see Abate start so I can see this elite defensive ability he has. It one thing to play with Nesta and Silva in backline with Gattuso covering for you but it another to play with Bonucci, Barzagli or Chiellini.

@Dhorasoo - Giaccherini is mostly for pace, I assume. There's no one there who can give width and pace.

Every midfielder in this list has had a better season than Aquilani. Very justifiable omission.

It is a solid squad, classic underdogs this time, but that's a situation that works very well for Italy.

The one guy I'd have liked to see in the squad was Quagliarella.

I would've liked Aquilani in the selection, and I agree his form pre-injury was good, but nothing out of the extraordinary. The last few months he has done absolutely nothing and looked terribly out of form. And I guess that's the reason why Prandelli didn't call him up.

The calls are based on merits, not name. Something I root for.
