Bergomi (Internazionale), Fabio Cannavaro (Parma),
Alessandro Costacurta (AC Milan), Paolo Maldini (AC
Milan), Alessandro Nesta (Lazio of Rome), Gianluca
Pessotto (Juventus), Moreno Torricelli
The list that Coach
Cesare Maldini presents is made up up
Gianluca Pagliuca (Internazionale of Milan),
Gianluigi Buffon (Parma).
Albertini (AC Milan), Dino Baggio (Parma), Sandro Cois
(Fiorentina), Luigi Di Biagio (AS Roma), Angelo Di Livio
(Juventus), Roberto Di Matteo (Chelsea, England),
Francesco Moriero (Internazionale).
Forwards: Roberto Baggio
(Bologna), Filippo Inzaghi (Juventus), Fabrizio Ravanelli
(Olympique Marseille, France), Christian Vieri (Atletico
de Madrid, Spain).
Who did not make it:
There was no room for Chelsea's Gianfranco Zola, or
Pierluigi Casiraghi of Lazio. Starting goalie Angelo
Peruzzi (Juventus of Turin) hurt himself during a warmup
and was lost for the Cup month.
Surprises: The inclusion
of Inter Milan's 34-year-old defender Giuseppe Bergomi,
the only member of Italy's victorious 1982 World Cup
squad still in action. Bergomi earned a surprise place in
the party after a seven-year absence, but Juventus
striker Alessandro Del Piero was named only provisionally
after picking up an injury to his groin in Wednesday
night's European Cup final. The unexpected injury to
Peruzzi clouds Italy's chances.
