My team would be:

Buffon; Zambrotta, Gamberini, Chiellini, Grosso; De Rossi, Pirlo, Aquilani; Camoranesi (or Del Piero), Toni, Cassano.

If Donadoni starts Gattuso and Ambro instead of the Roma midfielders I will simply not watch this match.

I never want to see barzagli, matrix partnership and ambro in the starting XI.

Well its simple really... one team finished 5th with that midfield, another finishes 2nd and one goes to the QF of the CL... and considering the current form of the players is the key... Donadoni was simply stupid to play all the players of the Milan midfield.

----------- Aquilani -- De Rossi
Camoranesi ------------------- Di Natale
-------------Del Piero/Cassano
------------------Toni

It's not been tested, but it couldn't get much worse than tonight at the same time.

Extension or not, Donadoni is gone if we get eliminated in the group stages. A sane man would make serious changes, but his moves in the 2nd half along with his starting line-up show this man may well put the same starting XI against Romania.

Interesting that everyone so far has chosen Cassano for the left attacking role. How about Del Piero? He got himself into two decent goalscoring opportunities today. The guy didnt finish top goalscorer for nothing. Not that I have anything against Cassano. Perhaps start him ahead of Camoranesi.

Also, it would be madness to consider starting Chiellini and Gamberini together.

This should definetly be your line-up for upcoming Romania game, but it won't be. Why? Because if Donadoni would think that problem tonight was in midfield, then he would make some changes in midfield and not in attack. IMO

I will only totally blame Donadoni for keeping faith in too many old players, but seriously guys we need to be real... this team was never going to be good enough to win 2008... even with the intoduction of the Roma midfield and so on, it is too soon for the youngsters and too late for the old guys.

It would be unwise to just throw the duo of Chiellini and Gamberini together. I very much doubt Donadoni will do that anyway. Sure, Barzagli and Matrix didnt have the best game together but it's not a simple solution of throwing in two inexperienced centre backs that havent really played with each other. I think one should be changed.
