Bonucci suffers from a muscular injury and Gagliardini has tested with an inconclusive result

Italy's national team

will play against Poland and Bosnia-Herzegovina for the Nations League matches without Bonucci and Gagliardini.

Bonucci

the defender of the national team suffers from a muscular injury that he picked up in the game against Lazio and he didn't appear against Estonia on Thursday.

In the interview with Rai Sport, he stated that "I wanted to be there at all costs, but unfortunately I can't."

He also added that "I pushed hard and gritted my teeth in the last 20 days, including against Lazio in the last half-hour when I felt discomfort". He mentioned that "Unfortunately it is a crescendo of pain, I am forced to stop. In Turin, we will evaluate the recovery times."

Roberto Gagliardini

will miss the Italy national team game due to an inconclusive COVID-19 test result. He tested positive for Covid-19 in early October. He had recovered and he started his activity and played against Estonia for the entire time.

Now with the results of the test on Saturday, the Italian Football Federation announced that he must return to Milan.
