Short-term injuries have sidelined Italy’s striker Federico Chiesa, left-back Federico Dimarco, and goalkeeper Ivan Provedel.

Carnesecchi, along with Argentina-born attacker Mateo Retegui, Alessandro Buongiorno, and Wladimiro Falcone, is one of four uncapped players that Mancini has called up for the games in March.
