Italy without Leonardo Spinazzola for England clash

Defender Leonardo Spinazzola is forced to withdraw from Italy's squad to face England on Tuesday night due to injury.

Italy have been dealt a blow ahead of Tuesday's friendly with England after Leonardo Spinazzola was forced to withdraw from the squad through injury.

The 25-year-old had been expected to start for Italy in the clash at Wembley Stadium after failing to make an appearance in the 2-0 defeat to Argentina last week.

However, the Azzurri have revealed that the Juventus defender has been allowed to return to Atalanta BC - where he is spending the season on loan - after picking up an unspecified knock in training.

The full-back is currently spending his second campaign at Atalanta, with a total of 63 appearances coming in all competitions since 2016.

Spinazzola made his debut for Italy last March, winning five caps since his initial bow.
