Italian National Football Team: Alessandro Del Piero Snubbed

XXX XXXSenior Writer IMarch 30, 2008

 Italy Coach Roberto Donadoni has elected to leave 2006 World Cup winner Alessandro Del Piero out of his team, even though the 33-year-old striker continues to break record after record at Juventus.

While helping the Turin side defeat Italian champion Inter Milan last weekend, Del Piero tied the record of 552 appearances for Juventus set by 1982 World Cup winner Gaetano Scirea.

In 15 years with Juventus, Del Piero has scored a club-record 231 goals.
