Marcello Trotta on the score sheet for Italy Under-21 in friendly win against Montenegro

Marcello Trotta was on target again for Italy Under-21.

The striker, who spent the majority of the 2013/14 season on loan at Brentford from Fulham, came on as an early substitute when Italy Under-21 played Montenegro yesterday, Wednesday June 4.

He scored the fourth goal in a 4-0 win, continuing his fine form at that level.

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.

Marcello has two in two official Under-21 internationals for his country.

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.
