English players in Italy XI

Joe Hart’s loan move to Torino means it’s now possible to create an XI of English players who have played in Italy. And it’s quite a team. I’ve selected a 4-2-3-1 formation as it appears Serie A clubs love an English midfielder.


There are plenty of players who miss out on the XI including Trevor Francis, Luther Blissett, Gordan Cowans and Gerry Hitchens. It should also be mentioned that Jay Bothroyd, Tony Dorigo, Franz Carr and Lee Sharpe also miss out (yes, they all played in Italy!).
