DeRossi is more than capable, and watch out for Simone Pepe. He had a solid campaign for Udinese. He can be dynamic in the midfield.
Actually, losing the "old-timers" Camorenesi and Pirlo may actually be a blessing in disguise for the Azzurri as some of the younger talent might revitalize this group.
