Lippi names pre-World Cup squad

Italy coach Marcello Lippi on Sunday named a 29-man squad for a pre-FIFA World Cup™ get-together in Rome on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Of the players likely to go to South Africa only AS Roma's Daniele De Rossi was missing from the squad.

Italy are the reigning champions and face Paraguay, Slovakia and New Zealand in Group F of this summer's finals.
