Claudio Marchisio

Marchisio earned his first senior cap for Italy back in 2009 and he has established himself a key man in Cesare Prandelli’s set-up, playing in six Euro 2012 qualifiers, scoring a vital goal in the 1-1 draw with Serbia last October.


After emerging through the Juventus ranks and earning the nickname of Il Principino (The Little Prince), Marchisio has established himself as a classy operator in the heat of battle and it’s no surprise that he scores the off vital goal as he started his career as a striker in the Juve youth team.


A quality passer of the ball, his loyalty to his current sponsors is confirmed he has a tattoo of their company logo emblazoned on his right forearm. Marchisio will expect a bumper new boot deal if he and emerges as one of the star names at Euro 2012 this summer.
