Luciano Spalletti has released the list of 27 players who will be called up for Italy’s upcoming UEFA Euro Qualifier matches against Malta and England. A handful of injury concerns have hit the Azzurri camp, but Spalletti will nonetheless bet on his side and try to bring all six points back home.

The most notable absences are that of Ciro Immobile, Lorenzo Pellegrini, Riccardo Orsolini, and Mateo Retegui. Federico Chiesa, Davide Frattesi, and Gianluca Scamacca have been surprisingly included, as they were expected to sit out due to fitness issues.
