Italy defender Marco Materazzi is not taking a starting spot for granted at Euro 2008 despite captain Fabio Cannavaro having been ruled out of the tournament with an ankle injury.
Materazzi partnered Cannavaro at the heart of Italy´s defence at the World Cup two years ago in Germany.
"There are no certainties," said Materazzi. "I don´t know if I will play, that is something the coach (Roberto Donadoni) will have to decide."
