Their failure saw Cesare Prandelli depart his role with former Juventus manager Antonio Conte, the man tasked with rebuilding the side. Conte a former Italian international has won three successive Serie A titles with Juventus and will bring youthful experience to the cause.
Holland meanwhile have turned to a familiar face as the world cup semi-finalists prepare for life after Louis Van Gaal. The new man in charge Is Guus Hiddink, the second time he has managed the national team.
While Conte’s aim is to rebuild pride, the focus for Hiddink will be to carry on the good work of Van Gaal with the Dutch surprising many to finish third overall in Brazil.
He will have to do without a number of key men with Arjen Robben (ankle), Klaas Jan Huntelaar (illness) and Rafael van der Vaart (knock), Jordy Clasie (hamstring) and Ron Vlaar (calf) ) all pulling out of the squad.
Newcomers are Celtic’s Virgil van Dijk and Paris Saint-Germain’s Gregory van der Wie while Luciano Narsingh of PSV also gets a call.
Italy for their part are without Giorgio Chiellini (calf), Gabriel Paletta (back) and Pablo Daniel Osvaldo (hamstring) while the suspended Mario Balotelli is out following his red card in the Uruguay match last time out.
