Pellegrini out of U21 squad

Cagliari left-back Luca Pellegrini has pulled out of Italy’s Under-21 squad with a minor ankle problem.

Pellegrini suffered the setback during training on Tuesday, but Gazzetta dello Sport assures his exit from the U21 camp is only precautionary.

Nonetheless, it is enough to see him eject from the squad and taking his place is Sassuolo’s Alessandro Tripaldelli.

The Juventus loanee becomes the second player to withdraw this week after Inter defender Alessandro Bastoni.

The Azzurrini face Iceland in Euro U21 qualifying action on Saturday, before hosting Armenia 72 hours later.
