ROME - Italy coach Cesare Prandelli,
emboldened by his side leaping six points clear in Euro 2012
qualifying, has made seven changes to his team for Tuesday's
friendly in Ukraine as he assesses his options for the finals.
Friday's 1-0 win in Slovenia meant Group C leaders Italy
have one foot in next year's tournament in Poland and Ukraine
but have yet to really sparkle under Prandelli and federation
president Giancarlo Abete has admitted they have no "stars".
Only defenders Giorgio Chellini and Christian Maggio keep
their place alongside midfielders Riccardo Montolivo and Alberto
Aquilani, with the latter shifting positions slightly to play
just behind the strikers.
Team: Emiliano Viviano; Christian Maggio, Daniele
Gastaldello, Giorgio Chiellini, Domenico Criscito; Antonio
Nocerino, Riccardo Montolivo, Claudio Marchisio; Alberto
Aquilani, Alberto Gilardino, Giuseppe Rossi.
