Antonio Conte has called up seven uncapped players for Italy’s training camp this week.
Marco Sportiello, Armando Izzo, Lorenzo Tonelli, Marco Benassi, Danilo Cataldi, Davide Zappacosta and Leonardo Pavoletti have all been summoned for a series of training sessions which start at Coverciano on Wednesday.
