Alessandro Diamanti

Italy coach Cesare Prandelli selected a handful of players few would have backed for Euro 2012 picks at the turn of the year, with Diamanti among those making the squad without playing a role in the Azzurri qualifying story for this tournament.

At the age of 29, this former Livorno, West Ham and Brescia attacking minded midfielder is hardly a novice, yet he is new to the international set-up having been overlooked by Italian national team selectors throughout his career.

An unpredictable performer, he is likely to be used as an impact substitute at Euro 2012, with his ability to turn a game with a moment of magic making him a handful for opponents whose legs may be tiring.

Every team needs a player with something a little different in their repertoire and Diamanti could be that man for Italy.
