The Italian national team has called up Paris Saint-Germain talents Moise Kean and Alessandro Florenzi for its November international fixtures, the association announced on Saturday.
Kean has emerged as a force in PSG’s attack as of late. The Italian forward is racking up goals in UEFA Champions League and Ligue 1 play. And while the team dealt with a serious October injury crisis, Kean was still among the reliable and available players for manager Thomas Tuchel.
Florenzi continues to surprise PSG’s side. He remains the clear first-choice option for the starting right-back role. And like Kean, Florenzi avoided any serious injury issues over the past month and became a regular in Tuchel’s squad lists for league and Champions League play.
On the matter of injuries, both players did leave the team’s league fixture against Stade Rennais earlier than one would have expected. But as Tuchel clarified following the game, both players are not dealing with any such notable injuries. Thus, they each should be ready to go to feature for Italy over the coming weeks. The two are expected to join the team on Nov. 10.
Italy will face Estonia in an international friendly, which will then be followed by its final UEFA Nations League group stage fixtures against Poland and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The latter two fixtures will be the biggest for both Kean and Florenzi with the Italian national team in quite a while.
