U-21: El Shaarawy earns recall

Stephan El Shaarawy returns to Italy's Under-21 squad for the Euro qualifiers against Turkey and Hungary.

Coach Ciro Ferrara named his side for the two matches in Istanbul on November 10 and in Casarano on November 15.

Milan starlet El Shaarawy had not been in the Azzurrini squad since February, but returns because Fabio Borini is injured, while Manolo Gabbiadini is suspended for the game with Turkey.

Goalkeepers: Bardi (Livorno), Colombi (Juve Stabia), Pinsoglio (Pescara);

Defenders: Antei (Grosseto), Caldirola (Inter), Capuano (Pescara), Crescenzi (Bari), Donati (Padova), Mori (Empoli), Faraoni (Inter), Santon (Newcastle);

Midfielders: Bertolacci (Lecce), Crimi (Grosseto), Florenzi (Crotone), Marrone (Juventus), Rossi (Vicenza), Saponara (Empoli);

Strikers: Destro (Siena), El Shaarawy (Milan), Gabbiadini (Atalanta), Paloschi (Chievo), Ragusa (Reggina)
