Marco Del Lungo
Marco Del Lungo, 29, enjoyed a fantastic summer this year with the national team as one of the stars in the Settebello team that won gold in Gwangju. The goalkeeper from Civitavecchia, who was part of the Brescia side that finished runners-up in Italy, is now among the very best in his position. After years behind Stefano Tempesti in the pecking order, he has now come into his own and is deserving of his place in the spotlight. At club level, he has won the Coppa Italia and Len Euro Cup in recent seasons and is certainly not giving up on his dream of winning the Scudetto.
