Profile:

What a time to score your first international goal: in the final of Euro 2000. Had justified his inclusion in the game with hard-running and intuitive link-play with Roma team-mate Totti. But all that wasn't enough in the end to assure an Italian victory.

Hard-running frontman who never gives up a lost cause, Delvecchio is as close to an English-style striker as exists in Italy.

Leeds defenders will recall his remarkable strength and determination from their UEFA Cup meetings in the past two seasons and Chelsea were believed to be lining up a bid for him earlier this season.

Tall and strong in the air as well as on the deck, he offers a fresh dimension and will certainly make a very dangerous substitute if not included from the start by Zoff.

Made his first appearance in a major international tournament when he came on as a late substitute against Belgium.

Late sub for Inzaghi in the semi-final against Holland and missed one of Italy's only opportunities.
