Del Piero not travelling to Kyiv

Last updated : 11 November 2002 By Martyn Elliott

With us needing the Turin giants to get at least a draw in Kyiv the news that Del Piero, Thuram, Ferrara, Camoranesi, Tacchinardi, Nedved, Trezeguet, Montero and Tudor have all stayed in Italy is more than a little unwelcome.

Tacchinardi is suspended and Trezegeut, Montero and Tudor are injured, but the others are all ‘rested’.

Marcello Lippi has called up four youth players, Mirante, Cassani, Paro and Sorrentino, for the trip.

The full Juventus squad is:

1 Gianluigi BUFFON
6 Salvatore FRESI
7 Gianluca PESSOTTO
8 Antonio CONTE
9 Marcelo SALAS
12 Antonio CHIMENTI
14 Cristian ZENONI
15 Alessandro BIRINDELLI
18 Marco DI VAIO
19 Gianluca ZAMBROTTA
20 Davide BAIOCCO
23 Ruben OLIVERA
24 Emiliano MORETTI
25 Marcelo ZALAYETA
26 Edgar DAVIDS
32 Mattia CASSANI
33 Antonio MIRANTE
37 Matteo PARO
