Apparently,  Italy Head Coach Cesare Prandelli already  picked hs "ideal starting formation."    The Azzurri had a practice match game against the Under 18 coach by Alberigo Evani.   Prandelli, supposedly,  testing in the first half the team who will be playing against Slovenia.  As expected, taking preference in the attack were the ex Sampdoria duo Antonio Cassano and Giampaolo Pazzini while Alberto Gilardino, Sebastian Giovinco and Giuseppe Rossi tested in the  second group.

Doctor of the Italian National team Professor Enrico  Castellacci informing:

-  Inter defender Andrea Ranocchia cannot make it an is ruled out for the match against Slovenia due to a knee injury.  Ranocchia left Coverciano.

- Thiago Motta  recovering and will remain. 

Here is the possible formation based on the trainings from Wednesday:

ITALY (4-3-1-2):  Buffon, Cristian Maggio, Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini, Federico Balzaretti, Alberto Aquilani, Thiago Motta, Riccardo Montolivo,  Alberto Aquilani, Stefano Mauri, Giampaolo Pazzini, and Antonio Cassano
