Sampdoria duo Gennaro Del Vecchio and Angel Palombo have been called up by Italy.
Italian coach Roberto Donadoni has added Sampdoria duo Gennaro Del Vecchio and Angel Palombo to his squad for their Euro 2008 qualifiers with Lithuania and France.
Donadoni has a number of injury worries and so has called up the Samp midfield duo as cover.
Donadoni's main area of concern is Antonio Cassano, although he is expected to get over his ankle problem.
Massimo Ambrosini and Daniele De Rossi are also struggling and so Donadoni does not want to leave himself short of options.
