ROME, May 8 (AFP) - Italy coach Giovanni Trapattoni, who named his 23-man squad for the World Cup here Wednesday, has put an additional four players on standby in the case of injury.

The four - a defender, two midfielders and a striker - will be required to follow a personal fitness programme in the event of one of the 23 having to pull out through injury.

Parma striker Marco Di Vaio, AC Milan midfielder Massimo Ambrosini, Lazio midfielder Stefano Fiore and Lazio defender Giuseppe Pancaro are the quartet.

Italy still have a pre-World Cup friendly to play with the Czech Republic in Prague on May 18.
