EURO2016: Conte names six Juventus stars in Italy squad

Antonio Conte has named his final 23-man Italy squad for Euro2016.

The Chelsea-bound manager has named six Juventus players in his final selection including 38-year-old goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon and experienced defender Giorgio Chiellini.

Conte has opted to overlook Riccardo Montolivo and Jorginho while Azzurri great Andrea Pirlo was previously left out of the provisional squad.

Three Premier League players were included with Manchester United full-back Matteo Darmian, West Ham United centre-half Angelo Ogbonna and Southampton striker Graziano Pelle all present.

"The choices are made, we reflected a great deal and picked the best at our disposal," said conte.

"As far as I am concerned, I have some pretty precise ideas."

The Italians will meet Finland in Verona in their final warm-up friendly on Monday before taking on Belgium in their Group E opener in Lyon on June 13.

The 1968 Euro winners also come up against the Republic of Ireland and Sweden in their group.
