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.
