Italy coach Roberto Mancini has announced the squad for the World Cup Qualifiers against Switzerland and Northern Ireland, with Nicolò Zaniolo back in the team and Tommaso Pobega’s first call-up.

The Azzurri have released the squad list for the qualifiers this month, as Mancini’s men are preparing to play Switzerland on November 12 and Northern Ireland three days later.

There are some surprises in the squad, as Zaniolo returns after missing out on the UEFA Nations League games last month.

Milan duo Sandro Tonali and Tommaso Pobega are on the list, with the latter impressing on loan at Torino this term.
