Insigne out of Italy squad

Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne has pulled out of the Italy squad with a muscle injury.

Insigned picked up the problem during Napoli’s 4-3 defeat to Juventus on Saturday.

A statement on the FIGC’s website confirms the 28-year-old has since left the Azzurri’s camp in Casteldebole and returned home.

He has already been replaced in Roberto Mancini’s squad by Freiburg winger Vincenzo Grifo.

La Nazionale face Armenia in the first of two Euro 2020 qualifiers on Thursday before rounding off against Finland three days later.
