Guys, can you please explain me why the f***k should Italy play against dangerous Spain at this stage whereas Other group winners has to play 3 placed teams. Is this the reward for winning the group. Then Italy should not have won the group.
it's the stupid 24 team setup. There isn't enough groups to make it even. We are just unlucky to face a runner up.

Italy Vs. Spain, rematch of 2008 & 2012....in order to be a champions you have to beat the champions...in Conte we trust....Forza Italia....!!!

I don't get it. I like Conte, but why take giaccherini and sturaro?!? Jorginho is much better in my opinion. Also, Zaza is nothing special. Would much rather Balo. I know he has a dip in form but let's be serious... If we are in a pinch, I'd much rather see Balo in there then zaza, sturaro, etc. sturaro could almost be blamed entirely for Juve's champions league exit. He choked like no other and turned the ball over every time he touched it... :(
and not forget he gave No. 10 to Thiago Motta....that's sum it all about the squad....god bless Azzurri...!
it's because Balo can no longer be tolerated especially in Conte's squad. He needs fighters and runners and Zaza fits.

Sturaro also scored vs Bayern, but he is young. I would have liked Jorginho in there because Marchisio and Verratti are out, but this is Conte.
The full squad:

Goalkeepers: Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus), Federico Marchetti (Lazio), Salvatore Sirigu (Paris Saint-Germain)

Defenders: Andrea Barzagli (Juventus), Leonardo Bonucci (Juventus), Giorgio Chiellini (Juventus), Angelo Ogbonna (West Ham)

Midfielders: Federico Bernardeschi (Fiorentina), Antonio Candreva (Lazio), Matteo Darmian (Manchester United), Daniele De Rossi (Roma), Mattia De Sciglio (AC Milan), Stephan El Shaarawy (Roma), Alessandro Florenzi (Roma), Emanuele Giaccherini (Bologna), Thiago Motta (Paris Saint-Germain), Marco Parolo (Lazio), Stefano Sturaro (Juventus)

Forwards: Eder (Inter), Ciro Immobile (Torino), Lorenzo Insigne (Napoli), Graziano Pelle (Southampton), Simone Zaza (Juventus)

With Euro 2016 on the horizon, Mina Rzouki looks at how Italy are shaping up for the tournament this summer.

Projected starting XI
Buffon; Bonucci, Barzagli, Chiellini; Florenzi, Marchisio, Verratti, Darmian; Candreva, Zaza, El Shaarawy

http://www.espnfcasia.com/team/italy/162/blog/post/2834959/euro-2016-italy-preview-finds-azzurri-light-in-attack

Def u really need BBC backing up Buffon, as for the Mid still acceptable....not sure about the Att...is this the best we have? Zaza is good as subs....should we bring Balo back?
group of death...yay!
We will play 3 draws and once again get eliminated without losing a game.
we always end up in group of death....but anyway....let's keep our finger cross and have faith in our team....and non the less, in Conte we trust!

Forza Azzurri...!!!
I want to see more aggression and attacking power in the teams play, Conte needs to try to play with a more attack minded team then defensive minded.
