Line-ups: Italy welcome Estonia

Italy take on Estonia in a Euro 2012 qualifier this evening with Giuseppe Rossi, Antonio Cassano and the recovered Andrea Ranocchia.

Cesare Prandelli had named his starting XI in yesterday's Press conference, leaving a question mark over Ranocchia.

The Inter defender has passed a fitness test and will take his place at centre-back with Giorgio Chiellini.

In attack there is no room for a traditional centre-forward, so Alberto Aquilani supports Rossi and Cassano.

Estonia must do without injured midfielder Aleksandr Dmitrijev and suspended striker Konstantin Vassiljev for this match at the Stadio Braglia in Modena at 19.45 UK time.

Andres Oper and Andrei Sirorenkov are also out, so Taijo Teniste gets a rare start.

Italy: Buffon; Maggio, Ranocchia, Chiellini, Balzaretti; Montolivo, Pirlo, Marchisio; Aquilani; Cassano, Rossi

Italy bench: Viviano, Gamberini, Pazzini, Giovinco, Gilardino, Cassani, Nocerino

Estonia: Pareiko; Jaager, Rahn, Piiroja, Kruglov; Puri, Vunk, Klavan, Kink; Teniste, Zenjov

Estonia bench: Londak, Mosnikov, Kams, Ahjupera, Barengrub, Saag, Stepanov
