Christian Maggio

A right-back who offers real menace as he burst forward with stunning efficiency, this former winger is a class act who could play a big role for Italy at Euro 2012.


Maggio may only have played in four qualifiers as the Azzurri made it through to this summer’s football fest, but his form with Napoli as they embarked on a thrilling run in this season’s Champions League has seen his star rise in the eyes of Italy boss Cesare Prandelli, who was picking him regularly at the back end of the qualifying push.


A full Italian international since 2008, he played in the 2010 World Cup finals, but this will be the first major tournament where he can consider himself to be a first pick for his country. After a fine season at club level, Maggio will be eager to boost his growing reputation this summer.
