Italy Squad For 2006 World Cup Finals

The Italians line up with an impressive looking squad :

Goalkeepers: Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus), Angelo Peruzzi (Lazio), Marco Amelia (Livorno)

Defenders: Alessandro Nesta (AC Milan), Marco Materazzi (Inter Milan), Fabio Cannavaro (Juventus), Gianluca Zambrotta (Juventus), Massimo Oddo (Lazio), Andrea Barzagli (Palermo), Fabio Grosso (Palermo), Cristian Zaccardo (Palermo)

Midfielders: Gennaro Gattuso (AC Milan), Andrea Pirlo (AC Milan), Mauro Camoranesi (Juventus), Simone Perrotta (Roma), Daniele De Rossi (Roma), Simone Barone (Palermo)

Forwards: Alberto Gilardino (AC Milan), Filippo Inzaghi (AC Milan), Luca Toni (Fiorentina), Alessandro Del Piero (Juventus), Francesco Totti (Roma), Vincenzo Iaquinta (Udinese).

No place for Vieri, despite his move to France, but the Italy frontline looks formidable. And, despite the fact that Italian football is in crisis following relevations about match fixing, the Italians go into this World Cup in good shape.
