Who do you think will be on the team in 2002 (whether or not they make it to the Cup- not pessimistic, just not cocky). I think Albertini will be too old, while Maldini will play in his final international tournament. (He wil be 34 in 2002- remember Bergomi in 98, Mathaus recently). Here is mine:

Toldo (not just for this Euro he has played consistently since 95)
Buffon
Abbiati

Nesta
Cannavaro
Coco
Maldini
Panucci

Di Biagio
Baronio
Pirlo
De Zerbi (thats why i have this name he is amazing-will be 20 in 2002 )
Ambrosini
Fiore

Del Piero
Totti
Vieri
Montella

I cant think of anyone else right now.

Hmm interesiting question. I can agree with most of you (besides Sartor and morfeo)
I think Albertini would not be to old, he would be 30 like di biagio too
de zerbi? roberto de zerbi? the milan player? hope he will make so good like you promise :)
but he is born in 1979, so he will be 22

what about tacchinardi? or maybe graffiedi? (but I guess he will be too young, his time will come later.

and nick dynamite :)
I am sure we can have a great team if our great talents get the time at their clubs to get experience.

stage...but in my mind he deserves a second chance.....

remember this is 2002 not 2010-
we need experience- albertini will still be there but although maldini was injured in final and i dont think hell still be there
Im sure Napoli and more so Atalanta-juve youth team will hae a few suprises with some new players. cassano is still too young yet.
id never let di biagio in the team and get tae F with gattuso

yea i agree with zoffs tactics. the defence was great but he knew he couldnt defend so deeply against france- as the goals proved. he is an excellent coach. the style we played against france with short passes was great - maybe lucarelli ahead of del bhoy

Albertini?? at 2002, he'll be 32 years old, we've got Tacchinardi already.
Roberto De Zerbi?? I think i've heard about this guy before, too bad he did not play for Lazio primavera :)

I forgot to mention Brocchi, Tacchinardi.
Del Piero is still one of the best, eventhough I'm not a juve fans, but i still believe that he's great, much even better than Inzaghi

Albertini is born in August, 1971, so WC 02 he will be 30, NOT 32!!! :D

In the world cup 2002, Albertini will be "almost" 31 (b. August '71), it pretty obvious that Tacchinardi will go to the world cup 2002 instead of Albertini!

I wouldn't even let Del Piero near the Azzurri's practice field. That bum doesn't deserve a thing from us fans. He's a sad, lazy puppy dog. And Inzaghi is terrible, too. Both of them should find new careers as insurance salesmen or piano carriers.

Alex Del Piero is an outstanding talent but in all honesty he does not have the nerves for the really big games. For his sake and for the national team's I don't think he should be included in future. Against Holland, quite out of the blue, he was a pretty good defensive midfielder - which was what the Assurri really needed at the time and maybe that's what got him a place in the lineup against France. But in the final game he could not do any good, offensively or defensively. The only game he really shone in was against Sweden when the pressure was not really on.

Albertini is a leader. Tacchinardi is now 25 and has not made it yet, it is obviously for me that Alessio will never reach the level of Demetrio and I think Albertini could feel his position as a central midfielder for some years, I see no probs for him playing in important part in the next WC. The player who may can replace him in future may be Ambrosini or Baronio of course, not Tacchinardi I guess.

Well i believe both Albertini and DiBiagio should still be there but mabye not starting. I would carry them to the world cup to add some age and experience to close odwn games at times.

good point made earlier about Tachinardi.......he is now 25 and has not yet made it......definately he will not reach ALbertini's heights. Maldini is a must who else will captain teh squad? Nesta or Totti should be vice and vice vice captain :)

Here is my squad.

Player................Age now
Goal Keeper
No.1 Buffon/Toldo.....22 & 27
no.2 Buffon/Toldo
No.3 Abiati..............21

Defenders
Maldini!!!!!! 32
Nesta....................24
Canavarro................26
Iuliano..................25
Lazzeri..................17
Ferrari..................22

Midfielders
Albertini................28
DiBiagio.................28
Zambrotta................22
Coco he is a wing back...21
Ambrosini................23
Baronio..................22
Vannucchi................22
Gattusso/Brocchi....21...24

Attackers
Totti....................24
Vieri....................26
Pirlo....................20
Cassano..................18
Ventola..................21

i think that is the most realistic squad projection here.

Here is how i would line them up.

..............Buffon
..............Nesta................
....Cannavarro.....Maldini
.......Ambrosini..Baronio
Zambrotta....................Coco
...............Pirlo................
...........Vieri....Totti...........

I thought Albertini was useless at Euro 2000, but he probably was the key to Italy's success :)
