In-form Inzaghi back in Italy squad

Having scored two goals in the UEFA Champions League final against Liverpool FC, AC Milan striker Filippo Inzaghi has been recalled to the Italy squad for the first time since October ahead of the UEFA EURO 2008™ qualifying games against the Faroe Islands and Lithuania.

Strikers rewarded

The 33-year-old Inzaghi has scored 22 goals in 53 games for the Azzurri but has not played for his country since the 2-0 win against Ukraine on 7 October. Coach Roberto Donadoni has also rewarded strikers Cristiano Lucarelli and Tommaso Rocchi, who scored 20 and 16 Serie A goals for AS Livorno Calcio and S.S. Lazio respectively this season, with call-ups while 25-year-old defender Alessandro Gamberini, whose ACF Fiorentina side had the best defensive record in Serie A, is the only uncapped player in the squad. Italy are fourth in Group B with ten points from five games, two points behind France, Ukraine and Scotland, and play the Faroes in Torshavn on 2 June before travelling to Kaunas to take on Lithuania four days later.

Ah that's Interesting for Italy but do you think he will be the man that pulls Italy through these two games as Luca Toni is out. Or do you think he will be a failure???
