Italy lose Piccini and El Shaarawy

Cristiano Piccini and Stephan El Shaarawy have both left the Italy squad due to injury ahead of the Euro 2020 qualifier with Liechtenstein.

The Azzurri are fresh from a 2-0 victory over Finland on Saturday evening and will host Liechtenstein at the Stadio Tardini in Parma on Tuesday.

It has been announced that both El Shaarawy and Piccini have left the training camp and returned to their clubs for further tests.

Roma winger El Shaarawy, who did not play against Finland, picked up a calf injury.

As for Piccini, he received his first start in an Italy jersey, but won’t follow it up for a while, as he has returned to Valencia.

Coach Roberto Mancini has already lost Lorenzo Insigne, Alessandro Florenzi and Federico Chiesa to muscular problems.
