Acerbi and Barella get Italy boost

Inter midfielder Nicolò Barella and Lazio defender Francesco Acerbi will join up with the Italy squad this evening after the game with Estonia.

Due to the packed fixture list and COVID-19 issues, the Azzurri called up 41 players for three matches.

Those from bigger clubs won’t come in until after tonight’s friendly with Estonia.

Among those given the all-clear to join up with the squad from this evening are Inter midfielder Barella and Lazio defender Acerbi.

They had been in doubt following COVID-19 cases among their club teammates, but the local health authority (ASL) have given the all-clear.

Others, such as the players from Roma, will not be allowed to participate, as the outbreak at their club is too large to risk it.

Italy will face Poland on November 15 and visit Bosnia-Herzegovina on November 18.
