We are set for the “rebuilding of the Italian National Team” after Italy failed to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.   New Italy Head Coach Roberto Mancini called up 30 players for three friendlies against Saudi Arabia, France, and Netherlands.

Players will meet on Wednesday 23 May at the Technical Center of Coverciano.   Surely, players will have 2 days off after the Serie A ended on Sunday 20 May.   As reported by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC), among the news, we have five players getting their first call-ups:   Chelsea’s Emerson Palmieri Dos Santos, Torino’s Daniele Baselli (who took part in a training camp under Cesare Prandelli), Crotone’s Rolando Mandragora (called up in 2017 for a training camp for emerging talents), Sassuolo forward Domencio Berardi (called up by Conte for Euro 2016 qualifiers but forced to leave through injury) and Atalanta’s Mattia Caldara who also featured in a camp.

Hello, hello, hello.  There is a comeback in the group, Nice striker Mario Balotelli.   Last time Balotelli  was called up by former Coach Antonio Conte in November 2014 for the qualifier against Croatia.  Balotelli could not participate and had to leave because of injury.   Let’s see whether Balotelli can make a difference this time.
