Domenico Criscito admits he’s more upset at missing out on the 2014 World Cup than Euro 2012.
The Zenit St. Petersburg defender was not included in the 30-man preliminary list of players for the tournament in Brazil.
“I cannot hide my displeasure...” wrote Criscito on his Twitter account.
“I felt even more p***ed off now than two years ago at the Euros... Thank to everyone for the support.”
Criscito was dropped from the Euro 2012 squad after allegations emerged of match-fixing, although he was completely cleared soon after.
