Domenico Berardi starts up front for Di Biagio’s team which will excite anyone who watched him net all four goals in Sassuolo’s 4-3 win against Milan in 2014, making him the youngest player in almost 80 years to scored four in a Serie A game. He seems to have been around for an age but the man from Cariati is still only 22 and will be a real asset to Italy in Poland.
Daniele Rugani at the centre of defence is plucked from Juventus where he has been schooled by the indomitable Chiellini, Barzaglia and Bonnuci. Next to him Caldara is a centre half who chips in with his share of goals and if Denmark get past all that they will be faced with the heir apparent to Gigi Buffon, the domineering 18 year-old Gianlugi Donnarumma.
A baptism of fire lies in wait for the Danes
