Matteo Soragna's presence in Italy's final roster were doubtful after suffering a finger injury during the Lega playoffs which needed surgery to repair a bone fracture on his hand. His absence would have been a misfortune for coach Recalcati, who with Soragna has one of the best defenders against dangerous shooting guards or small forwards. More than that, Matteo has improved as an outside shooter, working mainly from the corner positions.
Like Bulleri, Soragna is a typical late bloomer who made his debut with the national team at the age of 28. He's the kind of player all coaches love because of his attitude and hard work. He doesn't say a lot on the court but does all the right things.
