U21: Dimarco replaces Petretta

The Italy Under-21 side has lost Basel defender Raoul Petretta to injury, calling Sion player Federico Dimarco instead.

The Azzurrini will play a friendly against Norway on Thursday, then visit Serbia in Novi Sad on March 27.

Petretta will not take part, as he has been diagnosed with a muscular problem and sent home.

Instead, interim Coach Alberico Evani has brought in Sion defender Dimarco.

Inter sold the 20-year-old left-back to the Swiss club for €4m over the summer.

Italy had already lost Patrick Cutrone, who moved on to the senior squad after his performances for Milan, and his Rossoneri teammate Davide Calabria.
