Italy coach Antonio Conte goes into the European Championship with questions hanging over his team after injuries disrupted his selection plans and a lack of punch was exposed up front.However, injuries have disrupted Conte's midfield plans with Paris Saint-Germain's Marco Verratti and Claudio Marchisio of Juventus both out of the tournament after injuries requiring surgery.Italy can field an impressive all-Juventus defense with Buffon in goal and Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini and even 2006 World Cup veteran Andrea Barzagli in the backline.Up front, Conte will be looking to talented little Napoli winger Lorenzo Insigne and striker Stephan El Shaarawy, who has spent the season at AS Roma on loan from AC Milan, for flair and goals.
