Euro 2008: Del Piero Named Italy's Captain

Your Ad Here

Del_PieroThe Italians go to play Romania knowing that they have to win to stay in Euro 2008. After their shattering defeat against Holland 0-3, they are at the bottom of the table.

Captain of that team was goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, after Fabio Cannavaro pulled himself out of the tournament due to injury. The usual procedure of the Azzuri's is that the most capped member of the squad gets the arm band, which was Buffon as Del Piero came as a substitute against Holland. But against Romania Del Piero has restored to the starting 11 and according to reporters in Italy, coach Donadoni will hand him the captain's arm band.

Good Luck Azzuris!
