Italy manager Giampiero Ventura picks teenage AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma in his starting XI ahead of Wednesday's friendly with Uruguay in Nice.

Italy manager Giampiero Ventura has picked teenage AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma in his starting XI ahead of Wednesday's friendly with Uruguay in Nice.

The 18-year-old stopper, tipped by many to be Gianluigi Buffon's heir to the Azzurri number one jersey, makes only his second start for the senior national team.

Manchester United full-back Matteo Darmian is also involved from the off against the two-time World Cup winners, but there is no place in the squad for Nice striker Mario Balotelli.

Oscar Tabarez has also named a strong lineup, but Celeste stars Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez will not be involved as they are both nursing injuries.

Italy: Donnarumma, Chiellini, Astori, Bonucci, Darmian, Marchisio, Candreva, De Rossi, Spinazzola, Belotti, Immobile

Uruguay: Muslera, Coates, Pereira, Caceres, Gimenez, Nandez, Sanchez, Vecino, Gonzalez, Rolan, Urretaviscaya
