Barzagli to make Ireland return

Andrea Barzagli will be fit to face Ireland in Italy's last Group C match on Monday.
The Juventus centre-back revealed the news himself on his Twitter account, saying he would play against Giovanni Trapattoni's Irish side.
"Good news, I will be back for the match against TRAP," wrote Barzagli.
The 31-year-old World Cup winner in 2006 was suffering from a calf problem picked up in a friendly against Russia a couple of weeks ago.
He missed Italy's first two games against Spain and Croatia but his return will allow Daniele De Rossi to resume a midfield role having filled in as a libero in the first two games.
