Italy coach Donadoni will have a troublesome decision to make in the following weeks as he must decide which extra striker to select for the upcoming Euro 2008 tournament to be held in Austria and Switzerland. With the Serie A coming to a close end, every player is trying to do his best performances with a place for the hot european tournament in stake.
Antonio Cassano has had his best season with Sampdoria after returning from a disastrous spell with Real Madrid. His fine techniques and brilliances have led to the Italian notching some good goals as well as crediting Sampdoria with an impressive finish in the Serie A.
Alessandro Del Piero meanwhile has resurrected his probabilities of obtaining a place in Donadoni’s squad by making some incredibly impressive performances for Juventus. His superb performances especially against Inter and Lazio and Atalanta have showed how the Golden Boy is relishing not only a Champions League place with Juventus but also a place in next Summer’s tournament. He is currently second in the Capocannoniere of the Serie A just behind Borriello and team-mate Trezegeut who are in joint-first place.
Filippo Inzaghi, the Milanista has also some chances of playing for Italy with his latest goal coming in Milan’s most vital moment of their season. He notched the winner against Inter last Sunday and has made an incredible feat of 9 goals in his last five matches. Definitely a tough competitor for Del Piero and Cassano.
However, Inzaghi or Del Piero would sound a more good choice as they both have excessive experience in various competitions and can therefore be the pivotal point for the Azzuri next Summer. One of them will definitely be staying home next Summer unfortunately.
