U-21 squad for Italy-Spain

Italy have named their squad for the friendly against Spain on Tuesday, including three new arrivals and the return of Lorenzo Insigne.

Coach Devis Mangia released the list ahead of the match at the Stadio Artemio Franchi in Siena on Tuesday November 13 at 17.30 GMT.

New faces are Grosseto defender Federico Barba, Verona midfielder Jorginho and Cittadella’s Daniele Baselli.

Jorginho is Brazilian, but was awarded his Italian passport a few weeks ago.

Insigne is back in the Under-21 side after his foray into the senior squad, while Ciro Immobile and Alessandro Florenzi are also Serie A regulars at Genoa and Roma respectively.

The absence of Milan's Stephan El Shaarawy suggests the Serie A Capocannoniere will be in Cesare Prandelli's side to face France on Wednesday.

Goalkeepers: Francesco Bardi (Novara), Simone Colombi (Modena), Mattia Perin (Pescara);

Defenders: Federico Barba (Grosseto), Luca Caldirola (Cesena), Marco Capuano (Pescara), Mattia De Sciglio (Milan), Giulio Donati (Grosseto), Paolo Frascatore (Sassuolo), Simone Romagnoli (Pescara), Mario Sampirisi (Genoa);
