Italians drop Totti, would Domenech have the courage to do the same with Zidane?

Before kick off of the Italy-Australia match, the Italians have left Totti on the bench and added a third striker in Del Piero. Gutsy move by Lippi, but one that gives the Italians a more attacking flavor. Totti has not been aweful but has not controlled the game either, that role going to Pirlo who has emerged as the maestro for the Italian midfield.

We will see what this means for the Italians, remember that without Totti they destroyed Germany during a friendly 4-1 in Florence.

Maybe Domenech should take heed and give strong consideration to go back to the 4-4-2 he employed against Togo....with, gasp, Zidane on the bench.
