Conte sticks with front-three?

Antonio Conte looks set to stick with a 3-4-3 shape for Italy’s friendly with Germany tomorrow.

The Azzurri deployed an attacking trident in the draw with Spain, winning plaudits for their performance in the match.

During this morning’s training session, the first part of which was open to the Press, the CT divided the squad into two teams.

Sky reports that one of these is likely to be the one which starts against Germany, likely the 3-4-3 shape with Lorenzo Insigne, Simone Zaza and Federico Bernardeschi up-front.

Alessandro Florenzi is likely to replace the injured Emanuele Giaccherini on the left of midfield, with Lorenzo De Silvestri on the other side.

Gianluigi Buffon will take his customary place in goal, with Leonardo Bonucci, Matteo Darmian and Francesco Acerbi ahead of him.

Probable Italy team to face Germany: Buffon; Darmian, Bonucci, Acerbi; De Silvestri, Motta, Montolivo, Florenzi; Insigne, Zaza, Bernardeschi
