Marcello Lippi has made his final cuts...
Italy have named their final squad for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
Marcello Lippi released his provisional 30-man squad in early May and has since let go of Juventus duo Fabio Grosso and Antonio Candreva. The Azzurri tactician has now released five more players, to fine tune his final 23-man World Cup squad.
The unlucky players who will miss out on the high-profile tournament are Salvatore Sirigu, Mattia Cassani, Andrea Cossu, Marco Borriello and Giuseppe Rossi.
