Italy coach Marcelo Lippi announced his 30-man squad for the World Cup on Tuesday. Only ten players were nominated who were on the championship team in Germany four years ago. Nevertheless, a new team is tasked with ensuring old success. Will Italy be the first team since Brazil to win World Cups back to back?
The current team will be reduced by seven players by June 1, the date all participating countries must submit their final squads to FIFA. While there were few surprises in Lippi's nominations, some 2006 stars were not considered for the squad.
