U19: Kean, Scamacca removed

Verona striker Moise Kean and Sassuolo’s Gianluca Scamacca have been thrown out of the Italy U-19 squad for “disciplinary reasons.”

The exact nature of the incidents are still unclear, but the FIGC released a statement this evening.

“The players Gianluca Scamacca of Sassuolo and Moise Bioty Kean of Hellas Verona, in the training camp with the Under-19 side at Salsomaggiore, have been removed from the squad for disciplinary reasons by Azzurri Coach Paolo Nicolato.

“Gabriele Gori, Fiorentina forward, has been called up and will join the Nazionale for the friendly against Russia in Reggio-Emilia on September 5.”

Kean is owned by Juventus and was the first player born in the year 2000 to score a Serie A goal, but was loaned out to Verona on deadline day.

Scamacca came up through the Roma youth academy and is now owned by Sassuolo.
