Udogie gets first Italy call-up for Euro qualifiers v Malta, England

Italy’s national football team has included Tottenham Hotspur defender Destiny Udogie in their squad for the upcoming European Championship qualifiers against Malta and England, according to the Italian football federation (FIGC). This is Udogie’s first call-up to the national team, and it comes after the 20-year-old has started in all seven Premier League games for Spurs this season. However, midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini will be sidelined due to a muscle injury suffered in AS Roma’s Europa League match against Servette.

Italy currently sits in second place in Group C, trailing England by six points but with a game in hand against all their rivals. They will face bottom side Malta on October 14 in Bari before traveling to Wembley to take on England three days later.

Here is the full Italy squad for the upcoming matches:

Goalkeepers: Gianluigi Donnarumma (Paris St Germain), Alex Meret (Napoli), Ivan Provedel (Lazio), Guglielmo Vicario (Tottenham Hotspur)

Defenders: Francesco Acerbi, Alessandro Bastoni (both Inter Milan), Cristiano Biraghi (Fiorentina), Matteo Darmian (Inter), Giovanni Di Lorenzo (Napoli), Federico Dimarco (Inter), Federico Gatti (Juventus), Gianluca Mancini (AS Roma), Giorgio Scalvini (Atalanta), Destiny Udogie (Tottenham)

Midfielders: Nicolo Barella (Inter), Giacomo Bonaventura (Fiorentina), Bryan Cristante (Roma), Davide Frattesi (Inter), Manuel Locatelli (Juventus), Sandro Tonali (Newcastle United)

Attackers: Domenico Berardi (Sassuolo), Federico Chiesa (Juventus), Moise Kean (Juventus), Giacomo Raspadori (Napoli), Gianluca Scamacca (Atalanta), Mattia Zaccagni (Lazio), Nicolo Zaniolo (Aston Villa)
