The 27-year-old was omitted from Cesare Prandelli's Confederations Cup party due to indiscipline.

However, he has now been forgiven by Prandelli, who has also included Under-21 stars Marco Verratti and Lorenzo Insigne in his squad for the international fixture at the Stadio Olimpico.

Italy squad: Buffon (Juventus), Marchetti (Lazio), Sirigu (Paris St Germain); Antonelli (Genoa), Astori (Cagliari), Barzagli (Juventus), Bonucci (Juventus), Chiellini (Juventus), De Silvestri (Sampdoria), Maggio (Napoli), Ranocchia (Inter Milan); Aquilani (Fiorentina), Candreva (Lazio), Cerci (Torino), De Rossi (Roma), Diamanti (Bologna), Florenzi (Roma), Giaccherini (Sunderland), Marchisio (Juventus), Montolivo (Milan), Pirlo (Juventus), Verratti (Paris St Germain); Balotelli, El Shaarawy, Gilardino (Genoa), Insigne (Napoli), Osvaldo (Roma)
