Defenders: Giuseppe Bergomi (Internazionale), Fabio Cannavaro (Parma), Alessandro Costacurta (AC Milan), Paolo Maldini (AC Milan), Alessandro Nesta (Lazio of Rome), Gianluca Pessotto (Juventus), Moreno Torricelli (Juventus). 

Midfielders: Demetrio 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.
