Italy coach Antonio Conte has called up uncapped Sassuolo forward Domenico Berardi for the UEFA EURO 2016 qualifiers against Azerbaijan and Norway. Berardi, 21, has scored 31 Serie A goals in the last two seasons and is among a group of nine strikers that includes Torino's Fabio Quagliarella, who earned the last of his 24 caps in November 2010.

This was a 1-0 victory achieved as a team. We played well. The things we've been working on as a group were visible on the pitch. We created so much. In the second half we weren't able to finish the game off, but we did well to restrict the opposition to barely any chances. It would have been great to finish the game off earlier and generate a feeling of relief before the 90th minute, but we know matches are played until the very end.

[Group H rivals] Norway are a really good side, especially at home. They don't give you an inch and they're deadly upfront. Croatia are on the up too, but we're just focused on ourselves. It was important for us to win and now we need to win in Azerbaijan and then at home to Norway to finish off with maximum points and book our ticket for EURO 2016.
