Milan's Mario Balotelli's injury makes him unlikely to join Antonio Conte's Azzurri for the upcoming Euro 2016 qualifiers.
The player was setting to rights his tarnished reputation with some solid performances for the Rossoneri, but is currently out of the squad due to muscle fatigue in the groin.
The Azzurri play away to Azerbaijan on October 10, and in Rome against Norway on October 13, but it seems Super Mario won't be among them.
Today's edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport published a list of Conte's likely call-ups for the two games.
La Gazzetta's call-ups: Buffon, Sirigu, Marchetti, Bonucci, Chiellini, Barzagli, Ranocchia, Astori, Darmian, De Sciglio, Santon, Criscito, Pirlo, Montolivo, Verratti, Parolo, Soriano, Bertolacci, Florenzi, Candreva, Gabbiadini, Pellè, Eder, Zaza, Insigne, El Shaarawy, Giovinco, Berardi, Vazquez.
