It has been confirmed that Atalanta defender Giorgio Scalvini will miss the Euros due to an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

Atalanta confirmed on Sunday that defender Scalvini had suffered a cruciate ligament injury in the final match of the 2023-24 Serie A campaign against Fiorentina. An MRI scan undergone by the 20-year-old defender confirmed the rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament injury in his left knee. In the next few hours, the defender will undergo a specialist check-up to “define the next appropriate process”, said La Dea in an official statement quoted by Gazzetta. Scalvini was sent off in the final minutes of the last match of the season against Fiorentina in Bergamo. The promising defender had scored a first-half goal, but the match and the season ended in the worst possible way for him. Scalvini had been included in Italy’s preliminary squad for Euro 2024 and was due to arrive in Coverciano on Monday morning to begin preparations for the tournament alongside Gianluca Scamacca. Italy has already lost Inter’s Francesco Acerbi to a groin injury, so Juventus defender Federico Gatti has been put on alert.
