​Italy have confirmed their final 23-man squad for Euro 2016 after head coach Antonio Conte cut seven player from the provisional selection that was picked to face Scotland over the weekend.


Milan midfielder Riccardo Montolivo is the most experienced player to miss out, with Giacomo Bonaventura, Davide Astori, Jorginho and uncapped duo Daniele Rugani and Davide Zappacosta also being cut.

Gianluigi Buffon, Daniele De Rossi and Giorgio Chiellini are by far the most experienced in a squad featuring a number of relatively new faces looking to make amends for a group stage exit at the last World Cup.


As many as 13 members of Conte's final group have 20 caps or fewer to their name.


Italy will play their first game of the Euros against Belgium on 13th June, followed by meetings with Sweden and the Republic of Ireland. Prior to the tournament, there is still one further warm-up game to be played against Finland on Friday.


The 23-man squad in full is as follows:


Goalkeepers: Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus), Federico Marchetti (Lazio), Salvatore Sirigu (PSG)


Defenders: Mattia De Sciglio (Milan), Giorgio Chiellini (Juventus), Matteo Darmian (Manchester United), Angelo Ogbonna (West Ham United), Andrea Barzagli (Juventus), Leonardo Bonucci (Juventus)


Midfielders: Antonio Candreva (Lazio), Alessandro Florenzi (Roma), Tiago Motta (PSG), Stefano Sturaro (Juventus), Daniele De Rossi (Roma), Marco Parolo (Lazio), Federico Bernadeschi (Fiorentina), Stephan El Shaarwy (Roma), Emanuele Giaccherini (Bologna)


Forwards: Simone Zaza (Juventus), Graziano Pelle (Southampton), Ciro Immobile (Torino), Eder (Internazionale), Lorenzo Insigne (Napoli)
