Gallery: Italy train at Coverciano

Brescia youngster Sandro Tonali joined the Italy squad for his first training session this afternoon.

The midfielder, dubbed the new Andrea Pirlo, has been capped at youth level, but this is his first call-up to the senior Azzurri squad.

Ahead of the Nations League match with Portugal and the friendly with the U.S.A, Roberto Mancini's 27 man squad met up at Coverciano today.

New FIGC President Gabriele Gravina paid a visit to the players, who must beat Portugal to have any chance of reaching the Nations League finals next summer.
