To compensate for the withdrawals of several Italian players, coach Roberto Mancini has decided to summon the young Salvatore Esposito, midfielder of SPAL in Series B.
France is not the only selection to suffer from cascading absences. The Squadra Azzurra must also compose without several executives, such as Pellegrini, Politano and the Parisian Marco Verratti.
The Italian coach, Roberto Mancini, has decided to trust the youth by selecting Salvatore Esposito (21), midfielder playing for SPAL in Serie B.
For now, Italy finds itself third in Group C of the League of Nations, before receiving England at San Siro on Friday. Mancini’s men will travel three days later to Hungary, the surprising group leader.
