Seven new faces in Italy squad

Antonio Conte has called-up seven new players for an Italy training camp this week.

The CT will name his 30-man preliminary squad for Euro 2016 on May 23, but has taken the opportunity to assess some players at Coverciano this week.

No players from Juventus or Milan have been called-up, as the Coppa Italia final is on Saturday, but there are a number of new faces.

Marco Sportiello, Armando Izzo, Lorenzo Tonelli, Marco Benassi, Danilo Cataldi, Davide Zappacosta and Leonardo Pavoletti have all been called-up for the first time.

In addition, Sunderland striker Fabio Borini and Bologna goalkeeper Antonio Mirante have been called-up for the first time under Conte.

Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi has also been included in the preliminary squad, but there’s no place for MLS pair Andrea Pirlo and Sebastian Giovinco.
