Italy manager Cesare Prandelli has left out Inter Milan defender Andrea Ranocchia and Genoa forward Mattia Destro from Italy's 23-man squad for the 2012 European Championships. However, Juventus centre-back Leonardo Bonucci was included despite being involved in an ongoing match-fixing probe. Prandelli also had to drop Zenit St Petersburg defender Domenico Criscito on Monday after he was informed by police the left-back was being investigated in the same matter.
Bonucci has denied any wrongdoing but his name has been mentioned in testimony during the probe. He has not been formally placed under investigation as yet. The Italian FA has said it has no issues with the Juventus player's inclusion.
