Two missing for Azzurri
Italy coach Roberto Donadoni will have to do without injured duo Gianluca Zambrotta and Massimo Ambrosini for Saturday's Euro 2008 qualifier at Faroe Islands.
Zambrotta, the Barcelona full-back, sustained a minor knee injury during training on Thursday while Milan midfielder Ambrosini has been unable to recover from a problematic thigh.
Both players will not travel with the World Cup winners to the Faroe Islands but Donadoni is hopeful of recovering both players in time for Wednesday's qualifier against Lithuania in Kaunas.
The World champions are currently two points behind Group B leaders Ukraine, France and Scotland.
