You just copied my Italy v Romania Topic:(

ok this is easy since Zoff has no other possebility
than choosing this team:

_____________________Toldo___________________

______Cannavaro______Nesta____Iuliano________

_____________________________________Pessotto
Zambrotta_Di Biagio_Albertini________________
_______________________________Fiore_________

__________________Totti______________________
_______________________Inzaghi_______________

Maldini possible replacement for either Pessotto
or Iuliano, but Maldini probaly will still be injured.
Conte is out of EURO 2000!

Del Piero will again be on the bench:(

If maldini does not play this could hurt us..
Hopefully italy continues to play their kind of game.(STYLE)
This game could turn very interesting..

Two players had some troubles, Di Biagio and Maldini :(
I see Pesotto and Ambrosini will be a good replacement for them if they can't make it.
Conte is out :(

-------------------- Toldo -------------

---- Cannavaro - Nesta - Iuliano ----

-- Zambrotta -------------------- Pesotto/Maldini

--- Albertini - Ambrosini/ - Fiore ----
Di Biagio

----------- Totti -------- Del Piero ---

Forza Azzuri
I hope they beat that oranje :)

Albertini was amazing against romania!!

I totally agree with your line up pierre well done! but id much rather see montella but totti is more likely. Totti tries too many sill flicks and loses possesion when italy play a possesion based game. Im not too sure about midfield if Di biago is out i miss the likes of Dino Baggio he was a superb man-marker against McManaman in Wembley so would be good against the likes of Figo and Zidane. or Bergkamp i suppose too. I reckon Damn inzaghi will play instead of Del bhoy though as for some reason Zoff thinks hes good - i mean, if he wants him just to win penalties, why not play Del Vecchio he won hundreds of penalties for Abel Balbo the season before last!!!

Since Di Biagio and Conte are both out, maybe Zoff will have to play Fiore and Albertini in the middle with Totti behind Del Piero and Inzaghi. Ambrosini can't play because Holland unfortunalety have the best midfielder in the world. DAVIDS!!! Maybe Fiore and Albertini can try to stop him. My team would be:

Toldo
Nesta Cannavaro Iuliano
Zambrotta Fiore Albertini Maldini
Totti
Del Piero Inzaghi

Don't you think we should back to our "cattenacio" (am i speeling right :) things??
Against Holland we should play 5-3-2. coz Holland have a very good winger such as Overmars on the right and Zenden on the left.

Pierre, speeling is spelling actually. Don't worry, we understand your intentions. Overmars and Zenden will have Maldini and Zambrotta to deal with. Maldini is in fine form at the moment, Overmars won't have a feast day at all.

The advantage of the 3-5-2 is that it allows for a more effective contropiede, without which catenaccio is an utter waste of time. "palla lunga e pedalare" everybody...
