Kehl replaces Frings, Lippi plays safe

Italy coach Marcello Lippi sprung no surprises when he named his team for the World Cup semi-final showdown against host nation Germany.

Lippi kept faith with all but one of the side that crushed Ukraine 3-0 in the previous round, the only change seeing Marco Materazzi return from suspension to take his place at the heart of Italy's defence.

Luca Toni again operated as a lone striker, with playmaker Francesco Totti playing behind him in a 4-4-1-1 formation.

Germany boss Jurgen Klinsmann made two changes to the team that beat Argentina on penalties.

Sebastien Kehl replaced suspended midfielder Torsten Frings, while Tim Borowski earned a place in the team after Bastian Schweinsteiger was dropped for tactical reasons.

Fans started taking their seats at the Westfalen Stadion in Dortmund two hours prior to kick off.
