Marcello Lippi feels Italy will go to next year's Euros at full-strength.

Italy have lost Villarreal striker Giuseppe Rossi and AC Milan's Antonio Cassano for the next six months.

“They’ll both recover for Euro 2012,” Lippi insisted. “It’ll be just like when Francesco Totti did for my national side in 2006.

“I like this new Italy team and they seem to have the same sort of spirit as we had in Germany five years ago.”
