Diego call up

3 January 2013

Blades prospect Diego De Girolamo has been called up by Italy at U18s level to play in the Granatkin Memorial Cup in Russia later this month.

The Chesterfield-born striker, who made his senior Blades debut in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie at Coventry City last month, qualifies to represent the Italians courtesy of his Neapolitan father.

De Girolamo has subsequently linked up with the 20-man squad in Milan, prior to the Italians clash with Belgium on Sunday. Two days later Italy face Belarus, before finishing their group campaign against the hosts in St. Petersburg.

Back in October he penned a deal until the summer of 2015 after impressing for the U18s and U21s teams.
