Donadoni names two new faces to play Scots

Italy coach Roberto Donadoni has handed first call-ups to Roma defender Max Tonetto and Sampdoria forward Fabio Quagliarella ahead of the Euro 2008 qualifier against Scotland.

With injuries keeping Alessandro Nesta and Fabio Grosso out of contention, Tonetto has been included in Donadoni's 25-man squad for the encounter in Bari's Stadio San Nicola on March 28.

The absence of striker Vincenzo Iaquinta through injury and playmaker Francesco Totti, who is unavailable for national team duty until September, has forced Donadoni to call on the services of 23-year-old Quagliarella.

The Azzurri will begin training at their Coverciano headquarters in Florence on Monday.
