good for him, he deserved it, steadily improving to become a very good fullback.

According to Guardian

The Milan right-back Ignazio Abate is set to win his first cap while the Inter centre-back Andrea Ranocchia has also been named in the provisional starting 11 after Juventus's Andrea Barzagli pulled out of the squad on Thursday with a calf injury.

Provisional starting 11: Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus); Ignazio Abate (Milan), Andrea Ranocchia (Inter), Giorgio Chiellini (Juventus), Domenico Criscito (Zenit St Petersburg); Riccardo Montolivo, (Fiorentina), Daniele De Rossi (Roma), Andrea Pirlo (Juventus), Claudio Marchisio (Juventus); Mario Balotelli (Manchester City), Giampaolo Pazzini (Inter).

Let's hope he's doing great and return to Milanello in a full piece.

Unbeliavable that Marco Motta, De Silvestri and Santon all had a chance way before him.

Anyway, good luck to Abate.

So true..the only one I credit as somewhat solid is Santon but not even on abates level..hope to see abate play today..

Goal.crap give him 5,5.

Gave the ball away down the right a couple of times early on as he took his time getting over some early nerves, but grew into the game, even if he wasn’t as decisive as usual when getting into attacking positions

and more suprised me, montolivo was flop of the match :fp:

He was't bad. I would give him 6 easily. The defensive tactics are diferent than at Milan and Poland played very high with all formations. It was only a friendly and both teams played badly. Poland tried to play like Ajax from 90', Italy looked like they came to visit only. 1st goal solely Mario noticing horrible mistake by the polish GK. Second goal an offside my girlfriend even noticed, the referee didn't lol.
Abate played ok, didn't look like no worthy the team, played 90min too. I am sure he will go to Euro, maybe as a back up, but he will.

Justified rating. Abate certainly didnt make a case for himself to be selected for Euro 2012.

And Montolivo WAS the flop of the match. Dude was atrocious...

Well it was his first match with a new set of players . I hope he is given another match. The upcoming game Vs uruguay is a real challenge and if he does well he can make a strong case for himself.

He should get selected for Euro 2012. He can even get to start, he's defensive qualities are better than Maggio and he is much better than any other right back Italy has.

true , but maggio and cassani are pretty good too. They have been playing well with Italy so it will be tough. Italy has good options for right back . But its the cb pairing that worries me. I dont like any of the combo's. Gone are the days of nesta, canna....i have to look at the 6'5' frog trying to defend:fp:
