Ciro Ferrara has called two new faces for Italy's Under-21 European qualifiers against Liechtenstein and Turkey.

The Coach added Pescara midfielder Lorenzo Insigne and brought back Empoli defender Daniele Mori.

The rest of the squad is essentially the same side that beat Hungary 3-0 away from home in their opening game.
