Ex-Chelsea striker Fabio Borini wins first Italy call

AS Roma striker Fabio Borini has won a first call to the Italy squad.

The Azzurri take on Jurgen Klinsmann’s USA at Genoa’s Stadio Luigi Ferraris on Wednesday February 29.

Roma striker Borini was expected to be left out, as he was named in the Under-21 squad, but has been shifted to the senior team for his first call.

As it was reported, Balotelli has been dropped for breaking the code of ethics with his four-match ban for Manchester City.

Italy squad:

Goalkeepers: Buffon (Juventus), De Sanctis (Napoli), Sirigu (Paris St. Germain), Viviano (Palermo);

Defenders: Abate (Milan), Astori (Cagliari), Balzaretti (Palermo), Barzagli (Juventus), Bonucci (Juventus), Chiellini (Juventus), Criscito (Zenit), Maggio (Napoli), Ogbonna (Torino);

Midfielders: De Rossi (Roma), Marchisio (Juventus), Montolivo (Fiorentina), Thiago Motta (Paris St. Germain), Nocerino (Milan), Pirlo (Juventus);

Forwards: Borini (Roma), Giovinco (Parma), Matri (Juventus), Pazzini (Inter)
