Italy have been yet again hit with another injury ahead of European Championship qualifiers against Armenia and Finland as striker Lorenzo Insigne leaves the squad with a muscular problem.
Insigne will now join defenders Giorgio Chiellini and Mattia De Sciglio as well as midfielder Bryan Cristante who are on the sidelines with injuries. The Napoli forward was injured while playing for his club in a 4-3 loss to Juventus on Saturday but still reported to the Azzurri training camp on Monday.
The 28-year-old will be replaced by Freiburg winger Vincenzo Grifo. Francesco Acerbi, Danilo D’Ambrosio, and Sandro Tonali were called in for Chiellini, De Sciglio and Cristante, respectively.
