First training session for the Azzurrini. Departure for Hungary scheduled for tomorrow

The U21 national team met up in Rome yesterday ahead of their friendly against Hungary, due to take place in Telki on 12th August. The first training session took place with many players still missing: AS Roma defender Alessio Romagnoli had already joined the group, but withdrew from the squad in order to have a medical ahead of his impending transfer; a further nine players, all of whom were involved in Italian Cup action yesterday, will join the squad this afternoon. Due to injuries suffered at their respective clubs, Garritano (Cesena) and Parigini (Perugia) have left the squad too. The Azzurrini will leave for Telki tomorrow morning. This friendly represents a test ahead of the European Championship qualifiers, which will see Italy get their campaign underway against Slovenia in Reggio Emilia on 8th September. Squad:
