Demetrio Albertini

Date of birth23 August 1971
Place of birthBessana Brianza
NationalityItalian
Weight75 kg
Height1.80 m
PositionMidfielder

Now in the twilight of his career Demetrio remains a hard-working and effective figure in midfield for club and country. He made his international debut against Cyprus back in December 1991 and still features regularly for the Azurri, now having over 70 caps to his name. A regular for AC Milan since the early 1990s he has now made over 250 Serie A appearances having been a member of five title-winning teams, while he also won a European Champions' Cup winners' medal in 1994. Only injury will prevent him from being part of the squad but he appears to have banished the injury woes that have restricted his appearances in the last two seasons.
