Marcello Trotta named in Italy Under-21 squad for friendly against Montenegro
Marcello Trotta has received another call-up to the Italy Under-21 squad.
The striker, who spent the majority of the 2013/14 season on loan at Brentford from Fulham, has been called up to the squad for a friendly this week.
The Italy Under-21 squad meet up today, Sunday June 1, ahead of a friendly against Montenegro on Wednesday, June 4.
Marcello has been a regular in the Italy Under-21 set-up over the past few months.
The 21-year-old has scored four in three training matches and 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.
Marcello scored 13 goals for Brentford in 2013/14, helping The Bees to achieve promotion from Sky Bet League One.
