Club: Juventus

Profile:

Played a large part in Italy's run to the semi-finals but can thank his lucky stars that his teamates saved his bacon with their amazing defensive performance against Holland. Will miss the final.

Started against Turkey but lay a little too deep to make too much of a threat. Played well against Belgium where he both defended and attacked.

Another right-wing raider available to Zoff, Zambrotta has enjoyed a superb season with the Bianconeri and is more than worthy of a squad place.

A sign of his true quality is that he received his first international call-up while with Bari in February 1999.

Moved to the Delle Alpi last summer and has been well nurtured by Carlo Ancelotti. Very fast, he may yet get the nod ahead of Diego Fuser.
