Italy to field three ‘keepers

Gigi Buffon, Morgan De Sanctis and Salvatore Sirigu will reportedly all feature at some stage in Italy’s games against Poland and Uruguay.

Boss Cesare Prandelli is expected to give some playing time to all three custodians for the games scheduled for Friday and Tuesday.

Juve ‘keeper Buffon and De Sanctis of Napoli featured for their country last month as Italy played their final Euro 2012 qualifiers.

Paris Saint Germain shot-stopper Sirigu, though, hasn’t played for the Azzurri since the 3 September 2010 qualifier in Estonia.

There were reports over the weekend that Prandelli could recall Lazio ‘keeper Federico Marchetti after his return to form with Lazio, however he stood by Sirigu instead.

Sirigu has won just two caps for Italy, De Sanctis has four, while Buffon has 110 – only two short of legendary Azzurri No 1 Dino Zoff.
