After controversially being left out of the last Italy squad, Liverpool's Mario Balotelli has officially been recalled for next week's Euro 2016 qualifier against Croatia.
The fiery Italian is included for the first time since Antonio Conte became Italy boss, with the striker last time left out as Grazanio Pelle instead made the headlines.
Liverpool's new recruit is yet to score in the Premier League, and appears to have struggled in his time so far at the club.
This time though he does make the squad for next Sunday's Group H game against Croatia with a friendly against Albania two days later.
In other news, Conte has named uncapped Torino defender Emiliano Moretti and surprisingly has called up midfielders Andrea Bertolacci of Genoa and Roberto Soriano of Sampdoria for the first time.
- Liverpool can take positives from Real Madrid defeat
- Liverpool could be punished after breaking CL rules
- Mario Balotelli makes fool of Brad Jones
Atletico Madrid forward Alessio Cerci keeps his place in the squad hoping to make his 14th appearance, while Southampton's Graziano Pelle keeps his place after showing good form in the Premier League.
Both Italy and Croatia go into the game in good form, three wins from their opening three games has been a great start, yet four wins from four will be considerably better!

Goalkeepers: Buffon, Sirigu, Perin.
Defenders: Chiellini, Ranocchia, Ogbonna Rugani, Moretti.
