Zanetti fällt gegen Bulgarien aus

Recommended Posts

Azzurri have Zanetti doubt Sunday 20 June, 2004


Italy may have to do without Cristiano Zanetti for the crucial Group C game against Bulgaria.

The Inter man was expected to come into the side as a replacement for the suspended Gennaro Gattuso.

However, the tough tackling midfielder is struggling with fitness which could rule him out of Tuesday’s game.

That leads many to believe that Stefano Fiore is now in pole position to take Gattuso’s first team shirt.

The inclusion of the Lazio man would provide Trap with a more offensive side for a game that Italy must win by two goals.

Coach Giovanni Trapattoni also has another problem to resolve as captain Fabio Cannavaro is suspended.

Parma youngster Matteo Ferrari is a contender to step into defence but Marco Materazzi is set to get the nod.

The Inter man is considered as a better option to counter the threat of Bulgaria striker Dimitar Berbatov.

Italy are expected to play a similar system to the one that drew 1-1 with Sweden on Friday night.

Italy probable: Buffon; Panucci, Nesta, Materazzi, Zambrotta; Perrotta, Pirlo, Fiore; Del Piero, Cassano; Vieri.
