U21: COVID scare in Italy squad

There is confusion after the Italy U21 side pulled out of training just minutes before it was about to begin, with a friendly against Slovenia set for tomorrow.

The game is meant to kick off on Thursday at 16.30 UK time (15.30 GMT).

There was a training session scheduled for this afternoon and the team bus arrived at the ground, some of them got off the vehicle, only to get straight back on again.

According to Rai Sport, a phone call arrived and there were some worried faces before the turnaround.

It’s reported that some more COVID-19 positive cases might’ve been found within the squad, which would probably force the cancellation of tomorrow’s match.

There was already one positive COVID-19 test in the Azzurrini players when they arrived for training, so he was placed into isolation along with his roommate.
