    ROME -- Key defender Giorgio Chiellini was included in Italys preliminary 30-man World Cup squad Tuesday, ending doubts that he might face a code of ethics punishment for his three-match ban with Juventus. Homer Bailey Jersey . United States-born forward Giuseppe Rossi also made it, having just returned from a four-month layoff due to a right knee injury. Among those who missed the cut were forwards Alberto Gilardino and Pablo Osvaldo, Sunderland winger Emanuele Giaccherini, attacking midfielder Alessandro Diamanti, who recently joined Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande, and Zenit St. Petersburg fullback Domenico Criscito. The forwards included are Mario Balotelli, Antonio Cassano, Alessio Cerci, Mattia Destro, Ciro Immobile, Lorenzo Insigne and Rossi. On Monday, Chiellini was banned by the Serie A judge for elbowing Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic in Juventus 1-0 win Sunday. But Italy coach Cesare Prandelli apparently viewed the incident as not having any intent of violence. Last month, Roma forward Destro was left off the squad for fitness tests while he served a three-match ban for punching an opponent, and several other players have missed matches due to similar code of ethics violations. Prandellis latest squad announcement was made with a press release by the Italian football federation -- with no comments attached. Also left out was 17-year-old Udinese goalkeeper Simone Scuffet, hailed as the next Gianluigi Buffon. Torinos 24-year-old fullback Matteo Darmian was a surprise inclusion. Parma goalkeeper Antonio Mirante was left off the 30-man list but was called up to train with the squad in case of an injury to the three goalkeepers selected -- captain Gianluigi Buffon, Salvatore Sirigu and Mattia Perin. Its Buffons ninth call up to a major international tournament, moving him level with former Germany great Lothar Matthaus as the top Europeans -- and it would have been 10 if Buffon hadnt been injured for the 2000 European Championship. Four-time champion Italy is in Group D with England, Uruguay and Costa Rica. Final 23-man squads are due June 2. ------ Italy: Goalkeepers: Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus), Mattia Perin (Genoa), Salvatore Sirigu (Paris Saint-Germain). Defenders: Ignazio Abate (AC Milan), Andrea Barzagli (Juventus), Leonardo Bonucci (Juventus), Giorgio Chiellini (Juventus), Matteo Darmian (Torino), Mattia De Sciglio (AC Milan), Christian Maggio (Napoli), Gabriel Paletta (Parma), Manuel Pasqual (Fiorentina), Andrea Ranocchia (Inter Milan).

The mood in Seattle was electrified as the parade featuring the NFL champions began near the Space Needle and made its way to CenturyLink Field, the home of the team.

Mission accomplished. Now the Royals will take the field on Saturday with a World Series lead for the first time in team history when they play Game 4 of the Fall Classic against the Giants at AT&T Park.Celtic legend Kenny Dalglish believes Parkhead boss Ronny Deila is ready to grasp the opportunity presented by Sundays showdown with Rangers. Deila and his team took another step towards five-in-a-row with Saturdays 2-1 victory over Motherwell at Fir Park, a win which lifted them eight points clear at the top of the Premiership table.But there remain question marks over his long-term future with the champions due to his poor record in European competitions. However, Dalglish believes the Norwegian will realise he can ease some of the weight on his shoulders by beating Mark Warburtons side in this weekends Scottish Cup semi-final, live on Sky Sports.The Hoops favourite, who scored 167 goals in 322 games for the club between 1969-1977, said: I think its an important match for Ronny but Im sure he wont underestimate it. He had his first taste of it last year so he knows what its about.He understands Celtic, hes been there for a couple of years and he knows what the club stands for and what this game means. Leigh Griffiths celebrates winning goal at Motherwell The weekend game will be only the second meeting between the sides since Rangers were consigned to liquidation following their financial meltdown in 2012.Deilas champions-elect are hot favourites to follow up last years 2-0 League Cup victory with another win at Hampden but Dalglish insists the Ibrox men will be under just as much pressure as their rivals.In an Old Firm game, there is pressure on everybody, added Dalglish, who guided the Hoops to League Cup success during a brief spell in charge of the club in 1999-2000. Celtics 2-0 win over Rangers in the League Cup semi-final last year was a drubbing according to Dalglish Nobody is going to grab any bonus points by saying, Were Rangers, were just a& Championship team, were not under any pressure. Drew Storen Jersey. Ask the supporters if they are under any pressure. Its the same for Celtic. Celtic are under pressure because they want to win too.Celtic could not have had it any easier when they met Rangers last February - a match in which the Championship side failed to have one shot on target in the entire 90 minutes - but most Light Blues supporters were just glad to see their vastly under-equipped team not suffer a heavier beating. Petrofac Cup winners Rangers celebrate victory over Peterhead However, Dalglish, who won four Scottish Cup winners medals at Parkhead before heading for a glittering spell with Liverpool, feels this weeks match-up will be a closer affair.He said: The game last year was really a 2-0 drubbing for Rangers. But they have been fantastic this year with the brand of football they have played. James Tavernier at right-back is one of their top scorers with double figures. Dalglish scored 167 goals in 322 games in an eight-year spell at Celtic They have got a really good philosophy under Mark Warburton. But whether that is good enough to compete with Celtic remains to be seen.They had a game against St Johnstone where they lost 3-1 but then beat Dundee 4-0 in the Scottish Cup. Dundee drew with Celtic just a week ago, so youve got to give them a chance. It will be interesting to see how they react to playing Celtic, as they are the best team in the Premiership.
