Andrea Ranocchia and Mattia Destro have been left out of Italy's 23-man squad for Euro 2012 but Leonardo Bonucci is included despite the match-fixing crisis engulfing the country.
Head coach Cesare Prandelli was forced to drop Domenico Criscito on Monday after it emerged the left-back is being investigated by police with regards the match-fixing probe in Italy.
Prandelli has now further whittled his squad down from 25 ahead of UEFA's deadline for the June tournament, with centre-back Ranocchia's exclusion meaning Bonucci could start their Euro 2012 Group C opener against holders Spain in Gdansk on June 10.
Bonucci's name has been mentioned in testimony during the match-fixing probe but he has not been formally put under investigation and has denied any wrongdoing, while the Italian football federation is happy with the Juventus defender's inclusion.
