Caretaker Italy CT Luigi Di Biagio has named his squad for next week’s training camp at Coverciano.
The interim Azzurri boss will take Monday and Tuesday to evaluate some players, though he can’t call upon players from Juventus, Milan or Lazio due to their Coppa Italia commitments.
Goalkeepers Simone Scuffet and Alex Meret have been called-up, with Lorenzo Venuti of Benevento, Crotone’s Federico Ceccherini and one Atalanta player, Alessandro Bastoni, have been included among the defenders.
Di Biagio will take charge of two friendlies next month, against Argentina in Manchester and then England in London.
