ROME -- AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli has been included in the Italy squad to face Argentina in a friendly match Wednesday despite having a slight injury. Cheap Derrius Guice Jersey . Balotelli sustained a calf injury during AC Milans preseason tour in the United States but further tests have shown the problem is not as serious as first feared and the forward has been included in Italys 27-man squad on Friday. Fellow striker Pablo Osvaldo returns after being kicked off the squad for the Confederations Cup for insulting his club coach at Roma -- a breach of Italy coach Cesare Prandellis strict code of ethics. Osvaldo is one of seven players included who did not play in the June tournament, in which Italy finished third. Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne, Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti and Romas Alessandro Florenzi have been called up following good performances in the Under-21 European Championship. Sampdorias Lorenzo De Silvestri, who has not featured for Italy since 2010, also returns as do fellow defenders Andrea Ranocchia of Inter Milan and Genoas Luca Antonelli. The friendly is dedicated to Pope Francis, who is from Argentina and an avid football fan. Both squads will meet the Pope on Tuesday. ------ Italy: Goalkeepers: Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus), Federico Marchetti (Lazio), Salvatore Sirigu (Paris Saint-Germain). Defenders: Luca Antonelli (Genoa), Davide Astori (Cagliari), Andrea Barzagli (Juventus), Leonardo Bonucci (Juventus), Giorgio Chiellini (Juventus), Lorenzo De Silvestri (Sampdoria), Christian Maggio (Napoli), Andrea Ranocchia (Inter Milan).

Western Bulldogs star Marcus Bontempelli sees no reason why his side cant ride their inspired wave of momentum all the way to a drought-breaking AFL premiership.From the start of their finals campaign Luke Beveridges team dared to ask Why not us? and duly stormed to the clubs first grand final since 1961.The Dogs didnt have many friends after a wretched run with injuries heading into the finals and a deflating round-23 loss to lowly Fremantle in Perth.But Beveridges underdogs defied the odds to win three finals on their way to the premiership decider against Sydney and will hit the MCG with a full head of steam.Momentum is a strong thing and it can carry you to new places ... thats certainly been the case for us, Bontempelli said on Monday.Theres been an enormous amount of work thats gone into each week, but thats got to be mixed with a bit of momentum.Thats certainly been felt by us as a playing group.Weve had that mentality since the start of the finals ... were jusst on a journey to experience whatever comes our way really.

As long as we do that I think that will hold us in pretty good stead.Bontempelli looms as a key figure as the Bulldogs try to win their first flag since the clubs only grand final win in 1954.The sublimely talented midfielder is tailor-made for the biggest AFL stage, given his ability to seize the moment and elevate his game when his side needs it most.I dont know if I love them, but theyre moments in games and they can pop up at any particular time, he said.I dont know if Im conditioned to them ... but theyre just moments and as long as Im staying in the game for all moments really then you back yourself to be able to finish in those circumstances when they happen.Its something weve been able to do ... particularly in close games, weve been able to close them out well.
