    Cesare Prandelli selects Gigi Buffon, Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Pirlo in his international squad for the upcoming qualifiers against Bulgaria and Czech Republic

    Italy national coach Cesare Prandelli has named five Juventus players in his squad for the Azzurri’s World Cup 2014 qualification double-header against Bulgaria and Czech Republic.

    Gigi Buffon, Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Pirlo have all been included, while Claudio Marchisio misses out after picking up an injury in the Super Cup final against Lazio a fortnight ago.

    The Azzurri will be hoping to open up a seven-point gap at the top of Group B when they take on nearest challengers Bulgaria in Palermo on Friday 6 September.

    Four days later, Prandelli’s men will make their first ever appearance on the hallowed turf of Juventus Stadium, where they are due to meet Czech Republic just two days after the second anniversary of the stadium’s opening.
