Juventus defender Daniele Rugani has been called up to Antonio Conte's Italy squad to face Spain and Germany in place of Andrea Barzagli.
Rugani moves from Italy's Under-21 squad after his club team-mate Barzagli was ruled out with a muscular injury in his left leg, the defender returning to Turin for further treatment.
That paves the way for Rugani to win his first international cap, with the 21-year-old defender having impressed on his fleeting appearances for Juve this season – including starts in their last two Serie A matches.
Italy begin their Euro 2016 preparations in Udine against Spain on Thursday, before travelling to Munich to face world champions Germany five days later.
