Italy coach Cesare Prandelli has cut Inter defender Andrea Ranocchia and Siena striker Mattia Destro from his provisional squad for the European Championship ahead of Tuesday's friendly against Luxembourg.

The national team boss had already dropped seven players on Monday, and has now finalised his roster for Euro 2012.

Serie A champions Juventus have eight players in the Italy squad for this summer's tournament, while runners-up AC Milan are represented by three players. No Inter players have made the final squad following the omission of Ranocchia.

The Azzurri start Euro 2012 with the Group C match against Spain on June 10. They will also have to deal with Croatia and Republic of Ireland in the group stages.
