Vincenzo Iaquinta - Italy (Grazia Neri)

Vincenzo Iaquinta built his career at Udinese and Juventus. He played for several years in Friuli, becoming a leader for Udinese. His performances at the club prompted Marcello Lippi to all him for the 2006 World Cup, and Iaquinta scored the second goal in their opening match against Ghana.

One year after becoming World Champion, Juventus bought him when they returned in Serie A. He never was the first choice in Old Lady attack, but thanks to his commitment he became a Bianconeri fans idol. This year started very well for him, but a serious injury kept him away from the pitch for several months. He's come back just in time for the 2010 World Cup and he will surely have opportunities in the Azzurri team. Lippi loves him because he can asap to various roles without a problem.
