Italy tested their line-up for tomorrow’s Spain match, which includes Emanuele Giaccherini, Alessandro Diamanti and Angelo Ogbonna.
Cesare Prandelli ordered a game between ranks this afternoon in Gdansk’s Arena Stadium.
It was XI against XI and the defence was Daniele De Rossi at the centre of a defence with Angelo Ogbonna on the right and Giorgio Chiellini left.
There were changes in midfield, where Giaccherini and Christian Maggio took the wide roles around Andrea Pirlo, Thiago Motta and newcomer Diamanti.
The first choice front two of Mario Balotelli and Antonio Cassano were playing for the ‘reserve’ team so they could face the stronger Italian defence.
Italy play Spain on Sunday at 17.00 UK time in their Euro 2012 Group C opener.
