Fabio Borini is out of tonight’s Under-21 play-off tie between Italy and Sweden after fracturing his foot.
The Liverpool man was expected to start in the first leg at Pescara as the Azzurrini look to book their spot in next summer’s European Championship Finals.
The 21-year-old, handed back to the set-up after a spell with the full international side, picked up the injury in training.
Italy U-21 probable (4-3-3): Perin; Sampirisi, Romagnoli, Caldirola, De Sciglio; Florenzi, Viviani, Marrone; De Luca, Immobile, Insigne.
