Rome - Italy coach Jacques Brunel has made no changes to his squad for Sunday's Six Nations match against England.

Italy beat France in their tournament opener, but have since lost to Scotland and Wales. They face England at Twickenham before hosting Ireland in the Stadio Olimpico on March 16.

Prop Andrea Lo Cicero could make a record 102nd appearance after tying with Alessandro Troncon for most Italy caps against Wales.

Captain and No 8 Sergio Parisse is training with the squad as he waits for the outcome of his appeal against a ban.

Parisse received a 30-day ban for insulting a referee in a French Top 14 game with Stade Francais.

Fiji-born Manoa Vosawai could replace him at No 8 with prop Martin Castrogiovanni standing in as captain again.

Italy squad:

Forwards: Martin Castrogiovanni, Lorenzo Cittadini, Alberto De Marchi, Andrea Lo Cicero, Michele Rizzo, Leonardo Ghiraldini, Davide Giazzon, Joshua Furno, Quintin Geldenhuys, Francesco Minto, Antonio Pavanello, Robert Barbieri, Mauro Bergamasco, Paul Derbyshire, Simone Favaro, Ratu Manoa Seru Vosawai, Alessandro Zanni.

Backs: Tobias Botes, Edoardo Gori, Kristopher Burton, Luciano Orquera, Tommaso Benvenuti, Paolo Buso, Gonzalo Canale, Gonzalo Garcia, Tommaso Iannone, Andrea Masi, Luke McLean, Luca Morisi, Giovanbattista Venditti.
