Goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, defensive trio Andrea Barzagli, Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci and midfielders Andrea Pirlo and Claudio Marchisio all play for Juventus.
“The match with Serbia should be a good barometer of our credentials because they are technically one of the best teams in Europe,” Prandelli told a news conference on Thursday. We will be fully motivated because there is strong competition in our squad for spots in the starting line-up and this game is the start of our preparations for the finals. Giuseppe Rossi has shaken off his injury, he went the distance in a very intense training session, so he will start up front alongside Antonio Cassano,” added Prandelli.
Serbia coach Vladimir Petrovic is likely to stick to a more conservative 4-2-3-1 formation.
Gianluigi Buffon; Christian Maggio, Giorgio Chiellini, Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci; Riccardo Montolivo, Daniele De Rossi, Andrea Pirlo, Claudio Marchisio; Giuseppe Rossi, Antonio Cassano.
