Italian Federation contacts Nice about Balotelli call up

Nice ace Mario Balotelli is in line for a recall to the Italy team.

Sky Sport Italia says Nice received formal notification from the Italian Federation that Balotelli will be called up for international duty.

This is a formal step that has to be taken for players who are overseas and does not necessarily mean Balo will be in the final squad list next week.

It'll be his first call since the 2014 World Cup.

The Azzurri continue the 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign by hosting Spain at the Juventus Stadium in Turin on October 6, then visiting Macedonia on October 9.
