With Montolivo now the one excluded from the squad, it is good luck to all the Roma players that are there, including Mexes too. :thumbsup:

Meanwhile, Mexes was excluded from the France squad but the likes of Boumsong, Clerc and Squillaci remain.

Domenech is a clown. I hope we belt them.

I'm sorry for Mexes, but I'm glad. It weakens the French and now Mexes can have a relaxing summer and rest for the upcoming Roma season.

I've heard the Italian National Team numbers have been issued: Panucci #2, De Rossi #10, Aquilani #15, and Perrotta #20.

Nevermind Boum, a 36 year old, benchwarming Thuram is in the squad.

Flamini also didn't make the cut, it's clear Domenech has something against Serie A-based players.

Interestingly, Donadoni left the #10 up to the squad, who voted for DDR . Cassano would have taken 18 as from memory he wore that with us (1+8 = 9?) and Del Piero has worn #7 for Italy quite often (though I think at France '98 he had #10.)

Yeah, Del Piero had in 2000, but then gave it to Totti after that, and prefers Nr 7 since.

De Rossi better score a solo goal or two with that number :D

It was Baggio who had number 10 in France '98 world cup.
Incorrect. Baggio wore #10 in WC1994 and then #18 in WC1998. Del Piero wore the #10 in France.

De Rossi probably has it also because the last man to wear it was his team-mate Totti :thumbsup: However all things considered, this will be the first time for a good while that the no.10 for Italy is a box to box midfielder.

Only a idiot like Donadoni can let De Rossi out of the first team...
I loved the way he got that free kick on the edge of the box, when he went past 3 french players...Sometimes i wish he had more freedom to go upfront:groan:

Forza De Rossi!
