The coach of the defending World Champions, Marcelo Lippi finalized his roster for the massive encounter against Brazil. An omission from the squad is Juventus icon, Alessandro Del Piero. Il Capocannoniere from last year didn’t get the call and neither did Serie A’s leading scorer Marco Di Vaio of Bologna. Back in net for Azzurri is Gigi Buffon who missed their last friendly vs. Greece with an injury. The strength of the Serie A is in full effect as only 6 of the 23 players chosen play outside of Italy.

Here is the rest of the roster for the February 10th match vs. Brazil:

Goalkeepers: Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus), Marco Amelia (Palermo), Morgan De Sanctis (Galatasaray/TUR)

Defenders: Daniele Bonera (AC Milan), Fabio Cannavaro (Real Madrid/ESP), Andrea Dossena (Liverpool/ENG), Alessandro Gamberini (Fiorentina), Fabio Grosso (Olympique Lyon/FRA), Nicola Legrottaglie (Juventus), Gianluca Zambrotta (Milan)

Midfielders: Alberto Aquilani (AS Roma), Mauro Camoranesi (Juventus), Daniele De Rossi (Roma), Riccardo Montolivo (Fiorentina), Simone Pepe (Udinese), Simone Perrotta (Roma), Andrea Pirlo (Milan)

Forwards: Antonio Di Natale (Udinese), Alberto Gilardino (Fiorentina), Vincenzo Iaquinta (Juventus), Fabio Quagliarella (Udinese), Giuseppe Rossi (Villarreal/ESP), Luca Toni (Bayern Munich/GER)
