Kean & Zaniolo face Italy omission

Moise Kean and Nicolo Zaniolo are not expected to be called up by Italy for next month’s Euro 2020 qualifiers.

It was first reported in the wake of Italy Under-21’s European Championship exit in June that Kean and Zaniolo would be overlooked by CT Roberto Mancini.

The Everton striker and Roma midfielder were dropped for the Azzurrini’s final U21 Euro match against Belgium due to lateness.

Now, as per Corriere dello Sport, Mancini has decided not to call up the pair for the seniors’ upcoming fixtures against Armenia and Finland.

Instead, they should stay with the U21s and form part of the first squad named by new boss Paolo Nicolato.
