As reported by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC), the Italian team will meet to start training on Monday 11 November at the Technical Center of Coverciano.   Players getting their first called ups include Brescia defender Andrea Cistana,  Fiorentina midfielder Gaetano Castrovilli, and Bologna forward Riccardo Orsolini.  Udinese midfielder Rolando Mandragora and Sassuolo forward Domenico Berardi are back for the first time since June and November 2018. For the first time, Gianluca Vialli will be the delegation head.

Ticket option for Italy National team games



👉 Bosnia Herzegovina vs. Italy 

The Azzurri will be playing in Zenica for the first time. The only other match played away against Bosnia and Herzegovina was in Sarajevo in 1996 and defeat marked the end of the Arrigo Sacchi era. Following the match in Turin, the balance is now level against Bosnia and Herzegovina with a win apiece and the sides level on goal difference.

👉 Italy vs. Armenia

It will be the fourth match between Italy against Armenia after two qualifiers for the 2014 World Cup and the earlier European Qualifier in September in Yerevan. Italy have won two and drawn one. It will be the 14th match in Palermo where the side has won 12 times with a current run of six straight wins, drawn once and lost once.

Points are up for stake as the team looks to top the group and ensure its status as a seeded team for the draw on 30 November in Bucharest and make up ground in the FIFA Ranking ahead of qualification for the 2022 World Cup. Italy are currently 15th in the world and 10th in Europe.
