Angelo Ogbonna

Italy coach Cesare Prandelli is a fan of this Torino defender who can play in a central defensive role or a left back role, with his versatility helping him to secure a position in this Azzurri squad.


Playing his football in Serie B hardly seemed like the ideal platform to stake a claim for a Euro 2012 place, but Ogbonna has caught the eye with his solid displays and after earning his first senior cap in the friendly game against Poland last November, he is now preparing to take part in the biggest event of his professional career.


Born in Nigeria, he gained Italian citizenship shortly after his 18th birthday and he admits he is ‘fortunate to be here’, after he was involved in a horrifying car crash back in 2008. “It could have been the end of my life, but someone gave me a second chance,” says Ogbonna, who has been linked with a big money transfer this summer.
