I thought we might keep a thread on the fortunes of those players in contention to make Italy's Euro 2012 squad. It can be updated after each week's fixtures, to see who is up, down, and holds. Up Giovinco: phenomenal moment for the Atomic Ant. With two goals at the weekend he's joint top scorer with five goals this season. Cerci: nice goal today for Fiorentina. He's looking increasingly like the best Italian winger. Will he get a call-up soon? Balotelli: Tevez is finished at Manchester City; Mario isn't. Great goal at the weekend and according to word on the street, his attitude has been better lately. Down Ranocchia: Prandelli has dropped him for the upcoming fixtures. He's suffering from being part of an Inter team in chaos. Pazzini: had a rough game vs. Napoli Balzaretti: red-carded in today's match. Must be careful. Hold Montolivo: played a good game vs. Lazio. But his controversial contract dealings could jeopardize his Azzurri chances. Astori: has been a reliable presence for Cagliari. De Rossi: he's been Roma's best player this season--but we knew that.
