Antonio Cassano

If anyone deserved their place in the Italy squad for Euro 2012, it had to be Cassano after he played in all ten qualifiers and scored six goals as the Azzurri made it through to this summer’s finals.


However, this former Bari, Roma, Real Madrid and Sampdoria forward suffered a stroke last year and under-went minor heart surgery that saved his life, apparently ending his hopes of taking part in Euro 2012.


Italy coach Cesare Prandelli confirmed many months ago that he would take Cassano with him this summer if he could prove his fitness and his return to action with AC Milan in April was a welcome boost for all. “We have always wanted him to get the green light for Euro 2012 and we know he will be highly motivated to perform after doing so much to get us into this tournament,” says Prandelli.
