Italy faces today England in the first day of the Euro 2024 qualifications. For this purpose, Leonardo Bonucci, the captain of the Squadra Azzurra, despite his call-up, should not play. It is Marco Verratti who will take charge of the team on the field.

Leonardo Bonucci has been plagued by injuries for a while. The captain of the Italian national team did not train with the Azzurri during this international window. He has been doing indoor exercises. Against England, he should not be on the field or on the bench. In his absence, the captaincy goes to PSG midfielder Marco Verratti. He was even in the pre-game press conference with the national coach Roberto Mancini.
