Roberto Mancini will reportedly give FCSB forward Andrea Compagno his first call-up as he prepares his Italy team for the upcoming Euro qualifiers. After missing out on the World Cup in Qatar, the Azzurri will play England and Malta in their first two Euro 2024 qualifiers on March 23 and 26. Mancini stayed in his job as a lead trainer to manage another period for Italy, who again needed to come to life after their grievous World Cup capability play-off misfortune to North Macedonia last year.
"We have a player in the reigning European champion national team, Andrea Compagno,
in the Italian national team," FCSB general manager Mihai Stoica told Orange Sport, seemingly confirming Mancini's decision to add the 26-year-old to his Azzurri team. This season, the Palermo-born striker has scored 16 goals in 24 matches for FCSB in the Romanian SuperLiga. In a deal worth around €1.5 million, he moved from Universitatea Craiova to the club last summer.
Andrea Compagno told TMW that he "hopes to make it to Serie A" one day and wants to join a club in Italy. Roberto Mancini, Italy's CT, acknowledges that Serie A clubs rely less on Italian players: On Wednesday, Mancini met with the media following an event in Rome to present a commercial FIGC partnership. Each of the four Serie A clubs in the Europa and Gathering Association has been equipped for Round 16.
At the same time, Entomb, Milan, and Napoli won the primary leg in a similar phase of the Heroes Association. On March 23, the Azzurri will take on England in the opening match of the Euro 2024 qualifiers. He concluded, "I hope Napeolitans can assist us because there is currently a lot of enthusiasm in town."
