Antonio Conte stood up for Eder as “our top scorer in the squad,” but hasn’t decided whether to bring four or five strikers to Euro 2016.
 
The Azzurri face Scotland in a friendly this evening, kicking off in Malta at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT).
 
“Daniele De Rossi is doing fairly well, even if the pain in his Achilles tendon has resurfaced a little,” the Italy Coach told Rai Sport.
 
“Tonight I need to test him out, to see how he reacts to the pressures of a match situation.”
 
Eder will reportedly be cut from the final 23-man list and should start tonight as a last chance to prove himself.
 
Conte defended the decision to call him up at all, considering he has scored only one Serie A goal since leaving Sampdoria for Inter in January.
 
“Throughout the season Eder scored 13 Serie A goals, so he is our top scorer in the 30 Azzurri I have at my disposal today.
 
“After that, statistics are good unto themselves, but are of no interest to me. In any case, I haven’t decided yet whether to bring four or five strikers to France.”
