Fabio Cannavaro



Fabio Cannavaro
A first-choice central defender who tends to be underrated as a result of starring in a team featuring the exceptional talents of Nesta and Maldini.

He adds solidity and toughness to the back line together with man-marking skills that can nullify most opposing forwards.

Arguably Italy's best performer in defence during France 98, his debut came in 1997 against Northern Ireland and he has been ever present at the back since, amassing over 30 caps.

He made his Serie A debut for Napoli aged 20, before moving to Parma where he won Italian Cup and UEFA Cup winners medals in 1999.
