This was announced by Roberto Mancini, the coach of Squadra Azzurra, at a press conference on Monday.

Marco Verratti, called by Roberto Mancini for this first meeting of the 2022-2023 season, had nevertheless gone to Italy to take stock with the medical staff of the selection on his state of health.
