Germany Vs. Italy, Euro 2012 Semifinals: Lineups

UPDATE: Italy 2-1 Germany, Final Score

Germany are back to their regular lineup for their Euro 2012 semifinal against Italy, more or less. Having fielded Miroslav Klose, Marco Reus and Andre Schurrle against Greece in the quarterfinal, they're back to their stalwarts - with the exception of Thomas Mueller, who has been replaced by Thomas Mueller.

Italy, meanwhile, have sorted out their right back problem thanks to the return to fitness of Giorgio Chiellini, whose presence allows the back line to shuffle over far enough to plug the gap left by the suspended Christian Maggio and the injured Ignazio Abate.

Germany starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Manuel Neuer; Philipp Lahm, Holger Badstuber, Mats Hummels, Jerome Boateng; Bastian Schweinsteiger, Sami Khedira; Lukas Podolski, Toni Kroos, Mesut Ozil; Mario Gomez.

Italy starting lineup (4-3-1-2): Gianluigi Buffon; Giorgio Chiellini, Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci, Federico Balzaretti; Daniele de Rossi, Andrea Pirlo, Claudio Marchisio; Riccardo Montolivo; Antonio Cassano, Mario Balotelli.
