Italy Vs. Uruguay, 2011 International Friendly: Lineups

It's here! A most exciting match in the list of matches that do not matter: Italy hosting Uruguay in an attempt to answer that all-important question: which sky-blue team is the bluest of the blue? Will it be the azzurri, featuring SuperMario Balotelli paired up front with Roma's Pablo Osvaldo? Or will it be la celeste, with the deadly double of Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez, who is likely still buzzing from his four goals against Chile?

Then, of course, there are those who are simply hoping for no injuries from this purported friendly. Remember, defenders: no breaking anyone's leg, ok? Grazie and gracias.

Italy Starting XI: Gigi Buffon; Christian Maggio, Giorgio Chiellini, Andrea Ranocchia, Federico Balzaretti; Andrea Pirlo; Daniele De Rossi, Claudio Marchisio; Riccardo Montolivo; Pablo Osvaldo, Mario Balotelli.

Uruguay Starting XI: Fernando Muslera; Martin Cáceres, Diego Lugano, Diego Godín, Alvaro Pereira; Cristian Rodriguez, Diego Pérez, Egidio Arévalo, Maxi Pereira, Sebastian Fernandez y Edinson Cavani
