Juventus teenager Moise Kean could be a surprise starter for Italy in the Euro 2020 qualifier with Greece after specific work in training.
The clash kicks off in Athens on Saturday evening, before hosting Bosnia-Herzegovina on June 11.
Andrea Belotti, Ciro Immobile and Leonardo Pavoletti were all used in a friendly test against the Bologna youth team yesterday.
Rai Sport suggest that today Coach Roberto Mancini spent a long time working with Kean in training and the 19-year-old is a potential starter in Greece.
Kean has a remarkable record playing for Italy, scoring two goals in just three senior caps.
He found the net seven times in 17 competitive games for Juventus this season, most of them brief substitute appearances.
Meanwhile, Federico Bernardeschi remains in the balance between a role in the trident attack or in a deeper midfield position.
Federico Chiesa is widely expected to start, but there are doubts over Lorenzo Insigne’s status in the pecking order.
