Giuseppe Rossi lands Italy recall

Fiorentina striker Giuseppe Rossi has won a recall to the Italy squad for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers following a two-year absence.

Giuseppe Rossi has been in impressive form this season.

Rossi, 26, has been in fine form since moving to the Viola in the summer -- after a lengthy lay-off with cruciate ligament damage – and has hit six goals in seven games.

There is also a recall for Roma full-back Federico Balzaretti for the first time since November 2012.

The 31-year-old has been rewarded by Cesare Prandelli for the key role he has played in his club’s fine start to the Serie A season.

Sunderland winger Emanuele Giaccherini, Southampton striker Pablo Daniel Osvaldo and Paris Saint-Germain’s Salvatore Sirigu, Marco Verratti and Thiago Motta have also been included in Prandelli’s squad.

Mario Balotelli, meanwhile, is included despite earning a three-match ban for insulting a referee -- the Italy coach has typically excluded players suspended from domestic competition for violent or aggressive conduct.

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is retained and will pass Fabio Cannavaro's all-time appearance record should he earn a 137th cap.

Italy, who have already booked their place at next year's World Cup, meet Denmark in Copenhagen on October 11 before hosting Armenia in Palermo four days later.

Goalkeepers: Buffon (Juventus), Marchetti (Lazio), Sirigu (Paris Saint-Germain).

Defenders: Abate (AC Milan), Astori (Cagliari), Balzaretti (Roma), Bonucci (Juventus), Chiellini (Juventus), De Silvestri (Sampdoria), Pasqual (Fiorentina), Ranocchia (Inter Milan).

Midfielders: Aquilani (Fiorentina), Candreva (Lazio), De Rossi (Roma), Diamanti (Bologna), Florenzi (Roma), Giaccherini (Sunderland), Marchisio (Juventus), Montolivo (AC Milan), Pirlo (Juventus), Poli (AC Milan), Thiago Motta (Paris Saint-Germain), Verratti (Paris Saint-Germain).

Forwards: Balotelli (AC Milan), Cerci (Torino), Gilardino (Genoa), Insigne (Napoli), Osvaldo (Southampton), Rossi (Fiorentina).
