Italy national under-21 football B team
(part of Italian Football Federation)
|Head coach||Massimo Piscedda|
Italy national under-21 football B team is the Italy national football team that represents Serie B at competitions and is controlled by the Lega B. Due to sponsorship reasons, the team was credited as Under-21 Serie B TIM until 2010.
They are the B team and feeder team of Italy national under-21 football team, which occasionally plays against other national under-21 teams. Unlike the main team,[clarification needed] the U21 Serie B selects players from Serie B only and was controlled by Lega Calcio (later Lega B) instead of Italian Football Federation (FIGC).
The team also plays against football clubs, Under-20 Lega Pro (selected players from Lega Pro), Serie B Foreigners Best XI, The Football League under-21 team (in 2006) and internal friendlies, which the team split into blue and white team and against each other.
