News: Italy annouce squad for Euro Championships 2006

The 14 man squad is as below:

Joe Scuderi (Captain), (Australia)   
Alaud Din, Pianoro CC
Alessandro Bonora, Western Province CC (SUD AFRICA)
Andrea Corbellari, Brackenfell CC (SUD AFRICA)
Troy Crosland,  Pol. Gambassi
Edoardo Gallo,  Gallicano CC
Samantha Ketipe, Pianoro CC
Hemantha Jayasena, Pianoro CC
Nicholas Northcote, Pianoro CC
Gabriele Passaretti, Gallicano CC
Kelum Perera, Trentino CC
Nicola Puccio, Old Paradians (AUSTRALIA)
Francesco Scarponi, Gallicano CC
Valerio Zuppiroli, Pianoro CC

I can see that they have about 4 test country expats (Alaud din, Jayasena, Perera, Ketipe), and about another 4 test country imports (Puccio, Scuderi, Bonora and Corbellari). So essentially only 6 local players are in the team. Lets see how good they are against Denmark. The age of these players is also a cause for concern in my opinion. Scuderi, who is the Tikolo of Italy, perhaps is 38 years old.
