Italy XI for Euro 2016 leaked?

Italy’s XI for Euro 2016 may have leaked as the country’s Press are adamant Antonio Conte will use the same team that beat Scotland 1-0 last Sunday.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Conte will stick to his 3-5-2-shaped guns in Italy’s Euro 2016 opener against Belgium, starting with Gianluigi Buffon between the sticks.

The Juventus theme continues at the back, with Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini forming a three-man defence, while Antonio Candreva and Matteo Darmian are the wingbacks.

A midfield three of Alessandro Florenzi, Daniele De Rossi and Emanuele Giaccherini are then tipped to support Eder and Graziano Pelle up top.

ANSA adds Conte separated the group into two teams, the second having lined up in a 3-4-3, with Stephan El Shaarawy, Simone Zaza and Ciro Immobile spearheading.

Probable Italy XI vs Belgium: Buffon; Barzagli, Bonucci, Chiellini; Candreva, Florenzi, De Rossi, Giaccherini, Darmian; Eder, Pelle
