Diary

Friday, 10 August 2012 - Milan's Francesco Acerbi, Mattia De Sciglio and Stephan El Shaarawy, Pescara's Andrea Consigli, Atalanta's Mattia Perin, Federico Peluso and Manolo Gabbiadini and Sampdoria's Andrea Poli are all included in the 22-man squad. Returning to the Azzuri are Mattia Destro, Mark Verratti and Ezequiel Schelotto, who were a part of the provisional squad for the European Championships in Poland and Ukraine but have not yet made ​​their official debut with the senior team.

No Juventus or Napoli players have been named because of their involvement in Sunday's Supercoppa match in Beijing.

Monday, 13 August 2012 - Mario Balotelli missed Manchester City's 3-2 win over Chelsea in the traditional season-opener, the FA Community Shield yesterday, due to conjunctivitis. It has forced his withdrawal from the Italian squad. Cesar Prandelli has called up under-21 player Diego Fabbrini of Udinese as his replacement.
