Chiellini trains in isolation

Giorgio Chiellini remains a doubt for the Brazil game after the Juventus man trained on his own this morning.

The defender is struggling with ankle issues and it is unclear whether he will be available for Italy over the next week.

The Azzurri face Brazil in a friendly on Thursday, while they will play a World Cup qualifier in Malta on Tuesday.

The Azzurri squad took to the Coverciano playing fields at 10.45 local time this morning, but Chiellini worked in isolation away from the main group.

Training will resume behind closed doors later this afternoon.
