Italy have named brothers Simone and Filippo Inzaghi in the squad to face England in Wednesday's friendly international.

Filippo, who plays for Juventus, and younger brother Simone, the Lazio player, are named in the 21-man squad by coach Giovanni Trapattoni.

Others included are Francesco Totti, Marco Delvecchio and Alessandro del Piero.

Atalanta midfielder Damiano Zenoni is the surprise name in the squad. The 23-year-old midfielder has been rewarded for his part in newly-promoted Atalanta's superb start to the Serie A season, which sees them lie third after five games.

Zenoni, whose twin brother Cristian plays in the Atalanta defence, had never played in Serie A before this season.

Christian Vieri, who has returned to action with two substitute appearances for Inter Milan in the past week, was not considered fit enough.

Squad: Buffon (Parma), Toldo (Fiorentina); Bertotto (Udinese), Cannavaro (Parma), Nesta (Lazio), Pancaro (Lazio), Iuliano (Juventus), Maldini (Milan); Ambrosini (Milan), Albertini (Milan), Gattuso (Milan), Coco (Milan), D Zenoni (Atalanta), di Biagio (Inter), di Livio (Fiorentina), Fiore (Udinese); Totti (Roma), Delvecchio (Roma), del Piero (Juventus), F Inzaghi (Juventus), S Inzaghi (Lazio).
