Italian Football Federation (FIGC) vice-president Demetrio Albertini believes that Antonio Di Natale deserves to be considered for selection for Euro 2012. The Udinese striker is now 34 but remains the most prolific marksman in Serie A and, for that reason alone, Albertini feels Di Natale is a very viable option for Cesare Prandelli's Italy squad. "Given what he has done and is continuing to do, he is definitely one of the eligible candidates [for a place in the squad]," the former AC Milan midfielder told RaiSport 1. Of course, Di…
Italy doctor, professor Enrico Castellacci, has confirmed that Giuseppe Rossi is distraught at the prospect of missing Euro 2012 through injury. The Villarreal attacker has been on the sidelines for the majority of this campaign, but was expected to be fully fit in time for the tournament in Ukraine and Poland. However, the 25-year-old suffered a recurrence of the anterior cruciate ligament injury in club training on Friday, and will now miss the competition. Castellacci has confirmed that Rossi is devastated by the news and will be out of action…
Italy have been rocked by the news that Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi will definitely miss Euro 2012 after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament for a second time. The 25-year-old forward had been nearing a return to competitive action after first injuring his right knee during his club's Liga loss to Real Madrid at the tail end of October. However, Villarreal announced on Friday afternoon that the player tore his ACL again during a training session earlier in the day. Rossi now requires another operation on his knee and is expected…
Italy coach Cesare Prandelli has intimated that Mario Balotelli's European Championship place is not under threat because of the forward's sending off against Arsenal on Sunday. The Manchester City striker saw red late in the 1-0 loss to the Gunners for a foul on Bacary Sagna after escaping a similar punishment early on following a hard tackle on Alex Song. In February, Prandelli admitted that the controversial striker could be left out of his plans for the competition in Poland and Ukraine because of his temperament, but the 54-year-old coach…
Italy coach Cesare Prandelli has expressed his joy at learning that Antonio Cassano is poised to make his return to first-team action with AC Milan. The forward, who played an integral role in his country's qualification for Euro 2012, has not played since being forced to undergo an emergency heart procedure last November after falling ill following his club's Serie A clash with Roma at the Stadio Olimpico. It was initially feared that Cassano would not feature again this season but it is now being reported that the Bari native…
The boss again gave a cryptic response to the idea of the pair of World Cup winners turning out for the Azzurri again and would like Mario Balotelli to 'calm down'. It has been a number of years since the seasoned forwards made their last appearances for the national team, but the injuries to Giuseppe Rossi and Antonio Cassano have seemingly opened the door to the possibility of two sensational comebacks. However, the coach again was tight-lipped when posed the question: "Totti and Del Piero wearing the Azzurri colours? I…
The young striker is confident that he can convince Azzurri coach Cesare Prandelli to give him a place in the team if he continues playing at a high level. The 20-year-old, who is co-owned by Roma and Parma, has been in stunning form for the Giallorossi since joining the club in the summer, with nine goals to his name in Serie A. Borini made his Italy debut in the 1-0 friendly defeat against the United States in February, and is keen to represent the Azzurri in Poland and Ukraine this…
