Cannavoro misses

Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro will miss Euro 2008 after tearing ligaments in his left ankle during training. The Real Madrid defender collided with Giorgio Chiellini in a practice match on Monday. Fiorentina's Alessandro Gamberini has been called up as his replacement, with goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon likely to take over the captaincy. Italy have been grouped along with France, the Netherlands and Romania. The Euro 2008 begins on the 7th of June.
