Italian Soccer Serie A Supports 100% the Italian National Football Team in the UEFA Euro 2012.

It's the last training of the Italian National Football team this afternoon at the Pidulski Stadium in Krakow, Poland on Tuesday June 12, 2012.  Italy Head Coach Cesare Prandelli  making sure to have his visualized formation ready and checking up condition of players.  It seems everybody passing the fitness test, the only one not fully recovered yet is defender Andrea Barzagli.  Question is whether Prandelli will repeat same formation with Croatia.  Is he changing the lineup for Croatia, especially in the attack?  I will say a dilemma would be whether to use forward Antonio Di Natale or Mario Balotelli in the lineup.  In the headlines of  La Gazzetta dello Sport appearing the question, Balotelli yes or no?

The Azzurri will depart tomorrow Wednesday morning to Poznan, Poland where they are going to play on Thursday June 14 the Second UEFA Euro 2012 match, Italy vs Croatia.   I am ready to root for the Italian team.  Are you?  We got to win against Croatia, no other choice, period.

  •   Prandelli tried different strategies in the attack and the defense.  
  • Training ending with a practice match game 9 against 9.  Blue against Yellow.  The group with Blue winning 4-1 with two goals by forward Antonio Di Natale, Riccardo Montolivo and Thiago Motta. For the yellow group scoring Bonini.
  • Defender Andrea Barzagli training separately following athletic exercises. The doctor of the Italian National team, Dr. Enrico Castellazzi, excluded Barzagli for the game against Croatia.   Prandelli hope to recover Brazagli for the third game, Italy vs Republic of Ireland on June 18.
