12 players from the squad of Montella will play with national teams in this break.

After the match at Renzo Barbera with Palermo on Sunday afternoon (15:00 CET / Italy time), 12 first team red and black players will join their national teams.

Italy coach Giampiero Ventura has again named 6 Milan players in his squad, showing great confidence in Luca Antonelli in particular, calling him up despite the fact that the fullback has just returned from a muscular injury and hasn’t played since September. Luca is joined by Alessio Romagnoli, Jack Bonaventura and Mattia De Sciglio.

Italy U19 side has 5 Milan players too, although 3 (Andrés Llamas, Matteo Gabbia & Patrick Cutrone*) are from the Primavera. The other two are third-choice goalkeeper Alessandro Plizzari and the starting regista Manuel Locatelli. In South America, the Diavolo have two representatives and Carlos Bacca will face Copa America winners Chile and then play the runner-ups, Argentina, days later.

The full list of called-up players along with their matches (and the time, so you can follow them on the break) is below. After those international games, Milan play Inter at Stadio San Siro.

** Gianluca Lapadula was a late addition to the Italy squad.
