Italy call up debutants

Italy have called up debutants Riccardo Orsolini, Gaetano Castrovilli and Andrea Cistana for Euro 2020 qualifiers with Bosnia-Herzegovina and Armenia.

The trio earn their first-ever senior call-ups after catching the eye for Bologna, Fiorentina and Brescia respectively in the opening months of the season.

There are also inclusions for Udinese midfielder Rolando Mandragora and Sassuolo forward Domenico Berardi, while Emerson Palmieri returns after missing the October qualifiers through injury.

However, Brescia striker Mario Balotelli and Everton hitman Moise Kean both miss out again, as does Inter’s Stefano Sensi, who continues to be plagued by injuries.

The Azzurri have already booked their place at Euro 2020 with two games to spare and conclude their qualifying campaign over the next 10 days.
