Marcello Lippi's provisional squad for the World Cup contained few surprises and many of the same old names from the Azzurri's success four years ago.
In naming such a squad, many Italy fans feel he is neglecting some of the peninsula's best talent. Which leads one to ask the question: What would the Azzurri team Lippi has left behind look like?
(Note - in making my selection, I have not included any of the 29 in the provisional squad, nor the unnamed Roma and overseas players likely to be included - i.e. De Rossi, Giuseppe Rossi and possibly Francesco Totti)
