Picking an Italy Team for the Opening Game of Euro 2016 Qualification

It happened in different circumstances, but Italy have crashed out of another World Cup prematurely, and those in charge must now act quickly and decisively to rebuild the Azzurri in time for Euro 2016. 

Cesare Prandelli may or may not return as coach, but the manager isn't the only question mark hanging over Italy's current setup, and it's likely that several senior players have now kicked their last ball in the famous blue shirt. 

Good players still remain, of course, and there are several young prospects in Serie A who now deserve the chance to prove that they can impress for the Nazionale. 

So when qualification for their next international tournament begins, it's likely that the Italy squad will be made up by some familiar names, who still have much to offer and some fresh faces that can hopefully bring new ideas and some much-needed energy to a jaded team still reeling from the bitter disappointment of this summer in Brazil.
