Serbia name squad for Italy

Serbia have named their squad to face Italy in the Euro 2012 qualifier on October 7, including some familiar faces.

Coach Vladimir Petrovic called up the players for their final two Group C matches against Italy and Slovenia.

Although the Azzurri have already mathematically qualified, there is still a battle between Serbia and Slovenia for second place and a spot in the play-offs.

Dejan Stankovic is included despite the fact he has missed several Inter games due to injury and remains a doubt for this Saturday against Napoli.

Other familiar faces include Juventus winger Milos Krasic, Adem Ljajic of Fiorentina, Lecce's Nenad Tomovic and former Lazio star Aleksandar Kolarov.

Cesare Prandelli will name his Italy squad on Sunday.

This will effectively be the first real game between the sides in this group, as the previous match was abandoned due to Serbian hooligans throwing objects on to the pitch and threatening their own players in Genoa last year.

Serbia squad: Jorgacevic, Kahriman, Saranov; Ivanovic, Tomovic, Subotic, Vidic, Bisevac, Vilotic, Rajkovic, Kolarov, Tosic; Stankovic, Kuzmanovic, Petrovic, Fejsa, Ninkovic, Krasic, Tomic, Tosic, Ljajic, Jovanovic; Pantelic, Zigic, Mrdja
