Maldini, Iuliano Fit




GEEL, Belgium -- Italy captain Paolo Maldini and fellow defender Mark Iuliano should be fit to play in their side's Euro 2000 quarterfinal, coach Dino Zoff said Tuesday.


But Inter Milan midfielder Luigi Di Biagio, whose goal capped a fine personal performance in Italy's 2-1 Group B defeat of Sweden, is nursing a thigh injury and might not recover in time for Saturday's match.


"Maldini and Iuliano shouldn't be a problem for the next match but Di Biagio is a little more worrying," Zoff told a news conference at Italy's training camp.
