Double Italy duty for Kean

Teenage Juventus striker Moise Kean could find himself playing for both the Italy Under-21 and senior teams later this month.

The forward just turned 19 in February and hit the headlines with a sensational brace in Friday’s 4-1 win over Udinese.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, he could be doing double international duty over the next couple of weeks.

He’d first be called in for the Under-21 squad, who are playing friendlies against Austria on March 21 and Croatia on March 25.

This is part of the build-up for this summer’s European Under-21 Championship, which will be held in Italy and San Marino.

However, Kean would also then be in Roberto Mancini’s senior Nazionale for the Euro 2020 qualifier against Liechtenstein on March 26.

It’s most likely the two Azzurri Coaches would work out a schedule, so Kean would play on March 21 against Austria for the U21 side, then move over to the seniors for Liechtenstein five days later.

It would not be his debut, because Kean already made his Nazionale debut in November against the United States.
