Spain Vs. Italy, Euro 2012 Final: Lineups

Italy has not reverted to three at the back as Cesare Prandelli promised, but he's not playing with a true left back either. The entire Juventus starting back three is intact even though the Azzurri are playing a back four. Ignazio Abate returns at right back while Giorgio Chiellini stays at left back. The rest of the Italy team is as expected. Spain have busted out no surprises, with Cesc Fabregas at center forward and the other 10 players unchanged.

Spain Lineup (4-3-3): Iker Casillas; Jordi Alba, Gerard Pique, Sergio Ramos, Alvaro Arbeloa; Sergio Busquets, Xabi Alonso, Xavi Hernandez; Andres Iniesta, Cesc Fabregas, David Silva

Italy Lineup (4-3-1-2): Gianluigi Buffon; Giorgio Chiellini, Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci, Ignazio Abate; Daniele De Rossi, Andrea Pirlo, Claudio Marchisio; Riccardo Montolivo; Antonio Cassano, Mario Balotelli

Kickoff is at 2:45 p.m. ET, 9:45 p.m. local time from the Olympic Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine. You can catch the game on ESPN in the United States, TSN in Canada or BBC One in the United Kingdom.
