FIFA have changed the rules concerning jersey numbers .. now players on the field must wear numbers between 1-11 .. whereas the players from the bench from 12-18 ...


Against Finland - Italy's most recent International match - Zambro was wearing number 3 ...

Yeah but that's cause these games are friendlies/qualifiers, for which you can call a different squad each time. In the tournaments they have designated numbers up to 22 (I think), so that's how Zambro got 19.

True .. in the World Cup each team has a squad of 23 players .. but all players jersey numbers should be between 1-23 .. that prevented Argentina from retiring the number 10 shirt .. and yes Zambro had number 19 in the World Cup ;)
