The new Azzurri boss unveiled his first team and
has omitted the Liverpool striker, which could
be down to his suspension from the Euro 2016
qualifier against Norway

Antonio Conte has
announced his first squad
since taking over as coach of
Italy and has left Mario
Balotelli out.
The three-time Scudetto
winning coach with Juventus
was appointed as coach of the national team earlier
this month, replacing Cesare Prandelli who resigned
immediately after the loss to Uruguay which saw the
Azzurri eliminated from the World Cup.
Conte has announced the squad for his first games
in charge as they prepare to meet Netherlands in a
friendly on September 4 before they begin their
Euro 2016 qualifying campaign with Norway five
days later.
The biggest surprise in the squad is the absence of
Balotelli, however, that could be explained by the
new Liverpool striker's suspension from the Norway
tie.
Mainstays Gianluigi Buffon, Giorgio Chiellini,
Leonardo Bonucci, Daniele De Rossi and Claudio
Marchisio are all in the team, while Ciro Immobile,
Simone Zaza and Sebastian Giovinco are also
included.
Goalkeepers: Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus), Daniele
Padelli (Torino), Mattia Perin (Genoa), Salvatore
Sirigu (Paris Saint Germain);
Defenders: Davide Astori (Roma), Leonardo Bonucci
(Juventus), Giorgio Chiellini (Juventus), Gabriel
Paletta (Parma), Andrea Ranocchia (Inter);
Midfielders: Antonio Candreva (Lazio), Matteo
Darmian (Torino), Daniele De Rossi (Roma), Mattia
De Sciglio (Milan), Alessandro Florenzi (Roma),
Emanuele Giaccherini (Sunderland), Christian
Maggio (Napoli), Claudio Marchisio (Juventus),
Marco Parolo (Lazio), Manuel Pasqual (Fiorentina),
Andrea Poli (Milan), Marco Verratti (Paris Saint
Germain);
Attackers: Mattia Destro (Roma), Stephan El
Shaarawy (Milan), Sebastian Giovinco (Juventus),
Ciro Immobile (Borussia Dortmund), Pablo Osvaldo
(Inter), Simone Zaza (Sassuolo)
