Cannavaro out of Euro 2008

With Euro 2008 going to begin in a few days, world cup winners Italy are sure going to be one of the favourites for lifting the trophy. But they will be without there influential and experienced captain Fabio Cannavaro. who will be out for a few months after damaging ankle ligaments during the training session.

Since he was the captain of Italy, the coach Donadoni must now decide who to give the armband, the favourite being Gianluigi Buffon. The replacement being called for him is Alessandaro Gamberini who has performed well in a centre half position for his club. However, since Italy are in a group of death which contains the Dutch, France and Romania, losing Cannavaro may seem to be a blow. But Italy have got some good defenders in Nesta, Materazzi. It will be interesting to see how there defence holds out in there opening game against the Dutch side on 9th June.
