Italy-Luxembourg friendly cancelled!

Italy’s friendly against Luxembourg has been called off after an earthquake struck the country this morning.

After a 5.8 magnitude tremor which originated in nearby Modena, the decision has been taken to cancel tonight’s match at Parma’s Stadio Tardini.

The Italian Football Federation met with city officials on Tuesday where it was agreed that the game should not take place.

Players and staff in the team hotel felt the tremor this morning during breakfast. Udinese striker Antonio Di Natale was in the lift at the time.

The squad will return to their Coverciano training base this afternoon.
