I've always liked Bocchetti, plus him and Ogbonna can play LB as well.

Prandelli: I know my Italy 23
By Football Italia staff

Italy boss Cesare Prandelli says that he already knows which 23 players he’ll be taking to Euro 2012 – but he’s challenged his squad to change his mind.

Prandelli has named a 32-man preliminary list for the European Championship and training began today, even if players from Juventus, Napoli, Torino, Pescara and Paris Saint-Germain won’t arrive until Saturday.

“I have the final 23 in my head, but everyone in the squad has the ability to change my mind,” he stated at Coverciano on Monday.

“We have to create an environment of enthusiasm,” continued the tactician. “There is a desire to create a generous side. That way we will be able to take on any situation without problems.

“Unfortunately we don’t have a lot of time, but now we can only have positive thoughts.

“There are different interpretations when it comes to football. I base mine on the quality of players that I have at my disposal.

“I want my Italy to show how much work we have already done. I want my side to prove that they are a team.”

Prandelli’s main task in these next few weeks will be to find the right striking combination after Antonio Cassano missed most of the season following heart surgery, while Giuseppe Rossi has been ruled out with injury.

“Mario Balotelli and Cassano are finally together, but I might then opt for other players,” Prandelli laughed. “We’ll look to work on the quality of our play in order to get the best value from our attackers.

“Cassano’s strength is the way he is right now. A few days ago he said that he wanted to be in the final 23. He’s not sure of his place and that is pleasing.

“I’ve been clear with him – I can’t take players with me who are not 100 per cent because there isn’t the time to recover.

“Balotelli needs to think that this is an extraordinary opportunity for him. I hope that we only have to talk about what he does on the pitch. We’ll have to protect him from criticism.”

Prandelli has included some surprise names in his squad such as Pescara’s Marco Verratti and Mattia Destro of Siena. He admitted today that Lorenzo Insigne was a contender too.

“Insigne and Ciro Immobile of Pescara? They are important players from the Under-21 set-up and I admit that I did think about Insigne.

“Thanks to Pescara boss Zdenek Zeman, we’ve uncovered some interesting youngsters for the future. They have shown that they can handle the pressure.

“I’ve seen some good players with potential in Serie B this term.”

Prandelli was also unconcerned that his Juventus players would be adversely affected by last night’s Coppa Italia defeat to Napoli.

“For those Juventus players in my squad, they will still be motivated from their Scudetto win and they’ll now want to be protagonists with Italy.”

He was also asked about the fitness of Giorgio Chiellini given his thigh muscle problem and the importance of playmaker Andrea Pirlo.

“We’ll have to see the results of further tests, but the fact that Chiellini made himself available three days before he was scheduled to join the squad says it all. He wants to get back as soon as possible.

“Pirlo is a champion, a world class player, but if we base everything around him then we will become predictable. There are other players in midfield who we can count on.”

Italy have a strong team with a good amount of depth . My starting formation would be :

Buffon-Maggio-Barzagli-Chiellini-Criscito-De rossi-Pirlo-Marchisio-Giovinco(montolivo)-Cassano-Balotelli .

I think prandelli called up the right players . Especially upfront , were he choose borini(a real work horse) and destro(the perfect vice-balotelli) over craps like gilardino-borriello-quaglia-matri-pazzini etc. . El shaarawy could of been included but in the end its ok , he will be in the 2013-2014 squad of italy . This would be my final 23:
Buffon-Sirigu-De sanctis
Maggio-abate-Barzagli-Chiellini-Bonucci-Ogbonna-Criscito
Derossi-Nocerino-Pirlo-Montolivo-Marchisio-T.Motta-Diamanti(or verrati)
Balotelli-cassano-Di natale-Giovinco-Destro-Borini .

Possibly. But top scorer might be a little stretched coz he won't start from Game 1.

What we can be sure of, though, is that Cassano will be no. 1 in the list of assists.

I really hope nocerino outshines marchisio in the training sessions/friendlies and starts ahead of him.

not that I think nocerino is better, but marchisio has an annoying punchable face.

I have watched that game on video so many times since then, trying to work out what I did wrong. We lost 3-0 but I donít think now it was my fault. Ronaldo was simply unstoppable -- Nesta

I actually looking forward to seeing Italy this summer. In my view they are a darkhorse to winning the title. Favorites are of course Spain and Germany but I feel with a bit of luck Italy could win it

Prandelli will play a 4-3-1-2. No doubt. He used it throughout all of the qualifiers. Balotelli will start.

This should be their starting line-up:

Buffon
Maggio-Barzagli-Chiellini-Criscito
De Rossi-Pirlo-Marchisio
Giovinco
Cassano-Balotelli
