Italy announce final EURO 2024 squad list

Baku, June 7, AZERTAC
Luciano Spalletti has named his final 26-man squad for the EURO 2024 tournament, cutting Riccardo Orsolini, Samuele Ricci and Ivan Provedel, according to Football Italia.
He had originally called up 30 players for the Coverciano training camp last week, but immediately lost defenders Francesco Acerbi and Giorgio Scalvini to injury.
Juventus man Federico Gatti was added to the group a couple of days ago and is in the final list going to Germany.
Lazio goalkeeper Ivan Provedel has been sent home, largely because he struggled with injury during the final months of the season.
Bologna winger Orsolini did not impress in the friendly 0-0 draw with Turkey and Torino midfielder Ricci was always an alternate.
However, there is a suggestion that Napoli goalkeeper Alex Meret is not in the best shape either, so Provedel is still on pre-alert until the competition kicks off for Italy.
The Azzurri are in Group B along with Spain, Croatia and Albania as they defend their status as reigning Champions of Europe.
Other players who were injured before the Italy call-ups include Destiny Udogie, Domenico Berardi and Nicolò Zaniolo.
Italy’s EURO 2024 squad is as follows:
Goalkeepers: Donnarumma, Meret, Vicario
Defenders: Bastoni, Bellanova, Buongiorno, Calafiori, Cambiaso, Darmian, Di Lorenzo, Dimarco, Gatti, Mancini
Midfielders: Barella, Cristante, Fagioli, Folorunsho, Frattesi, Jorginho, Pellegrini
Forwards: Chiesa, El Shaarawy, Raspadori, Retegui, Scamacca, Zaccagni
