MILAN - Sevilla midfielder Luca Cigarini
received his first Italy callup on Monday after the injured
Claudio Marchisio pulled out of the squad to face Estonia and
the Faroe Islands in Euro 2012 qualifiers.
The Italian soccer federation said in a statement the
24-year-old Cigarini, on loan to the Spanish club from Napoli,
would replace Marchisio after the Juventus player suffered a leg
injury in the 1-0 loss at Bari in Sunday's Serie A opener.
Antonio Cassano has a back injury but coach Cesare Prandelli
said he hoped the Sampdoria playmaker could be fit to face
Estonia in Tallinn on Friday or play in their second Group C
game at home to Faroe Islands in Florence on September 7.
