Andrea Barzagli

A World Cup winner in 2006, Barzagli looks set to start as one of Cesare Prandelli’s first choice centre-backs at Euro 2012 this summer and he can be relied upon to turn in some rock solid performances at the heart of the Azzurri defence.


It is quite a story for this former outcast who wondered if his international career as he was overlooked for selection for three years until he was handed a route back into the line-up for the final two Euro 2012 qualifiers, with his class shining through as he quickly cemented a place in the team.


He claims his move to Juventus has got him back into the international fold as he was out of sight and mind of the national team selectors during his time with Wolfsburg in Germany, yet this former Chievo and Palermo star is too good to be overlooked for any team. “I wondered if another chance would come for me with Italy, but it is here now and I have to snatch it,” says Barzagli.
