By SFC Media time Tue 31 May Club

Graziano Pellè has been confirmed in the final Italy squad for EURO 2016.

The Southampton striker has been with his country on their pre-tournament camp, scoring the winner in their 1-0 friendly victory over Scotland at the weekend.

Pellè has become a regular in his national team’s set-up since joining Saints in the summer of 2014 and will now take part in his first major international tournament, as part of head coach Antonio Conte’s 23-man squad.

The 30-year-old heads to the competition, in France, having racked up 12 caps and five goals for his country, while he is coming off the back of a season in which he netted 14 times for Saints.

Italy finish off their preparations for the European Championship with a home friendly against Finland next Monday.

They then begin their Group E campaign against Belgium on Monday 13th June, with matches against Sweden and Republic of Ireland following.
