DelPiero left off of squad

Alessandro DelPiero was passed over by Roberto Donadoni and replaced with newcomer Raffaele Palladino for Saturday's key Euro2008 qualifying match with Scotland.

The game will be played at Hampden Park in Glasgow at 5pm local time (6pm in Italy).

Hey Tony - well, it's a shame because DelPiero is a fan favorite and put the stake through the heart of Germany in the 2006 semifinals. But we all know this had to be done sooner or later. I'd love to have his veteran presence for such an important game but what can one do?

Otherwise, I hope you post some pictures tomorrow afternoon of the game. I want to see that new Italy away kit in action. You can check this site: for specific pictures of the new kit if you haven't already seen it. I hate it, to be honest - and I'm hoping Puma gets enough negative feedback that they hold off on redesigning the new home kit. The collar isn't necessary; the gold strip a little tacky but we'll take it; the new numbers are a step back from the home number/letter design (even though that will eventually get pretty old), and the logo placement is odd; I liked it better at center. Forza Azzurri domani!
