Dimarco, Chiesa withdraw from Italy’s squad for England, Malta ties

Italy coach Roberto Mancini will be without the services of Federico Dimarco and Federico Chiesa for their opening Euro 2024 qualifications against England and Malta.

Both players picked up injuries in Sunday’s Derby d’Italia which Juventus claimed with a single goal scored by Filip Kostic.

Inter’s defender Dimarco had to be replaced just past the hour mark by Danilo D’Ambrosio. He will be replaced by West Ham United wingback Emerson Palmieri, winner of the 2021 European title with the Azzurri.

Chiesa, on his part, came on from the bench on minute 66 but left the field less than 20 minutes later for Leandro Paredes.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Ivan Provedel has been withdrawn from the squad after an injury and will be replaced by Cremonese’s Marco Carnesecchi, who originally was selected by the U-21’s selection.

Italy face Malta in their second Euro qualifier this Sunday, at the National Stadium in Ta’ Qali.
