Man City striker Balotelli wins Italy recall

Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli is back in the Italy squad.

AS Roma's Daniele De Rossi has again been omitted though, perhaps as punishment for his recent dismissal at Bari which saw him handed a three-match ban.

Italy play Estonia on June 3 in a Euro 2012 qualifier, before facing Giovanni Trapattoni's Republic side in a friendly on June 7.

Defenders: Astori (Cagliari), Balzaretti (Palermo), Cassani (Palermo), Chiellini (Juventus), Criscito (Genoa), Gamberini (Fiorentina), Maggio (Napoli), Ranocchia (Inter)

Midfielders: Aquilani (Juventus), Marchisio (Juventus), Montolivo (Fiorentina), Thiago Motta (Inter), Nocerino (Palermo), Palombo (Sampdoria), Pirlo (Milan)

Attackers: Balotelli (Manchester City), Cassano (Milan), Gilardino (Fiorentina), Giovinco (Parma), Matri (Juventus), Pazzini (Inter), Rossi (Villarreal)
