Marcello Trotta scores twice in practice match for Italy Under-21

Brentford’s on-loan striker Marcello Trotta was again in the goals for Italy’s Under-21 side yesterday.

Marcello has been in Italy since Sunday for an Italy Under-21 training camp, being held in Florence.

The camp ended with a training match against Fiorentina Primavera yesterday, Tuesday April 29, and Marcello scored twice in a 3-0 win.

The 21-year-old has now scored four in three training matches for Italy Under-21.

He also netted his debut in a 2-0 win over Northern Ireland in a 2015 UEFA European Under-21 Championships qualifier in March.

The Northern Ireland win was Italy’s fourth win in six qualifying games.

They are currently third in Qualifying Group Nine with 12 points, a point behind joint leaders Belgium and Serbia with two games remaining, which are to be played in September.

They also have a friendly coming up against Montenegro in June.

Marcello is on loan at Brentford from Fulham for the 2013/14 season, his second spell at Griffin Park.

He has scored 13 goals for Brentford this season, helping The Bees to achieve promotion from Sky Bet League One.
