Milan midfielder Giacomo Bonaventura was given “renewed enthusiasm” by the Italy call from Antonio Conte.
‘Jack’ was brought in after Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne pulled out due to a knee injury.
The Azzurri play Euro 2016 qualifiers against Azerbaijan on Saturday and Norway on Tuesday.
“In a moment that was not great at Milan, this call certainly gave me renewed enthusiasm,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“I am happy to go to the Coverciano camp and I feel ready. The European Championships are a big motivation to do well.
“I will certainly try to do my best with Milan so I can become an important player for the Nazionale.”
