Italy coach Cesare Prandelli says he already knows his squad for the Euros.

Prandelli has named a 32-man preliminary list for the European Championship and training began today, even if players from Juventus, Napoli, Torino, Pescara and Paris Saint-Germain won’t arrive until Saturday.

“I have the final 23 in my head, but everyone in the squad has the ability to change my mind,” he stated at Coverciano on Monday.

“We have to create an environment of enthusiasm,” continued the tactician. “There is a desire to create a generous side. That way we will be able to take on any situation without problems.

“Unfortunately we don’t have a lot of time, but now we can only have positive thoughts.

“There are different interpretations when it comes to football. I base mine on the quality of players that I have at my disposal.

“I want my Italy to show how much work we have already done. I want my side to prove that they are a team.”
