Milan striker Pietro Pellegri is among the players added to the Italy Under-21 squad, while Udinese’s Destiny Udogie pulls out.

The Azzurrini will face the Republic of Ireland in a European Under-21 Championship qualifier in Dublin on Friday at 16.30 GMT.

They then take on Romania at the Stadio Stirpe in Frosinone on Tuesday at 16.30 GMT for a friendly.

Udinese defender Udogie left the training ground due to a muscular issue.
