Chiellini made three interceptions during Friday's 1-0 victory over Sweden.

Chiellini and his defensive mates were tasked with slowing down the dangerous Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and they did so with relative ease, limiting him and the rest of the Swedes to four shots off target. Chiellini is a key cog in the formidable Italian back line and will continue as such as the unit looks to secure a perfect defensive record in the group stage Wednesday versus Ireland.

He is not known for his offensive contributions, but as a member of one of the strongest defensive units in the tournament, he will carry modest fantasy value into Friday's match versus Sweden.
