Milan unveil Club World Cup squad

Carlo Ancelotti has named his 23-man squad for the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan, including the injured Ronaldo and Marek Jankulovski.

Milan are representing Europe in the tournament that runs from December 7 to 16 after lifting the UEFA Champions League trophy last season.

The Rossoneri only enter the competition from the semi-finals on December 13, where they will face one of Sepahan, Waitakere United and Urawa Red Diamonds.

Although Ronaldo and full-back Jankulovski are currently out of action, Ancelotti hopes to have them both back in time to play in Japan.

Under FIFA rules Milan can bring 23 players, but Alexandre Pato cannot take part, as the 18-year-old’s registration can only be made official from January 2008.

Boca Juniors enter from the other semi-final and the trophy will be assigned in Yokohama on December 16.

Milan squad: Dida, Kalac, Fiori; Cafu, Maldini, Kaladze, Nesta, Simic, Jankulovski, Bonera, Serginho, Oddo; Emerson, Gattuso, Seedorf, Gourcuff, Pirlo, Ambrosini, Brocchi; Inzaghi, Gilardino, Kaka, Ronaldo.
