Italy's captain will be absent in the team's third match in the Euro.


defender Giorgio Chiellini will miss his last Euro 2020 group stage match against Wales due to injury, but it is unclear whether Azzuri defender will be ready for the next round.

Italy defeated Switzerland 3-0 last night to become the first team to advance to the next round. However, Chiellini suffered an injury in the first half during last night's match and was forced to leave the pitch.

He underwent medical tests in Florence today, and it was determined that his injury was not serious, but he will miss Sunday's match against Wales.

According to Sky Sports Italia, his physical condition is being monitored daily, and it is not yet clear whether he is ready to play in the knockout round.

It remains to be seen what replacement Mancini will use for him and whether he can join his team in the next round.
