NATIONS - Italy, Pellegrini will be replaced by Castrovilli

Lorenzo Pellegrini confirms he will not be taking part in Euro 2020 due to “this damn thigh problem”.

He will be replaced by Fiorentina’s midfielder Gaetano Castrovilli.

Roma's midfielder Pellegrini was diagnosed with the muscular problem this morning and it immediately became clear he would not be ready to participate in the tournament, which kicks off tomorrow against Turkey.

“Unfortunately, this damn thigh problem will not allow me to play in the Euros,” he wrote on his Instagram’s profile.

“I feel such disappointment and bitterness right now, but this is also the moment when we must all come together even closer and cheer on this fantastic group of real men who I am sure will give their soul in every game from start to finish”, he said.
