Romagnoli and Ceccherini out for Uruguay and Liechtenstein matches as new s

A few hours ahead of this evening’s friendly with San Marino, Gian Piero Ventura confirmed his squad for the friendly with Uruguay and the World Cup Qualifier against Liechtenstein. The two matches will take place in Nice on 7th June and in Udine on 11th June respectively.

Compared to the last squad published, Ventura has called up Atalanta’s Andrea Conti in place of Emerson Palmieri who was injured in the final match of the season between Roma and Genoa. The Verona and Crotone defenders Alex Ferrari and Gian Marco Ferrari have also been called up to replace the unavailable Ceccherini and Romagnoli.

The five Juventus players (Buffon, Bonucci, Chiellini, Barzagli and Marchisio) will join the squad on Monday 5th June after the Champions League final while other players will withdraw on the same date.

The team will be based in Coverciano from Friday 2nd June where they will train until Tuesday 6th June before they leave for Nice ahead of facing Uruguay on Wednesday 7th June at the Allianz Riviera. The following day, they will return to Coverciano before moving on to Udine ahead of the Liechtenstein game.
