Italy CT Roberto Mancini has named his 33-man provisional squad for Euro 2020, but the coach’s choices, including Davide Calabria’s omission, are making fans discuss.

Italy will begin the training retreat in Coverciano on Monday, May 24, four days before a friendly against San Marino at the Sardegna Arena.

Chelsea’s Jorginho and Emerson Palmieri will join the squad after the Champions League Final against Manchester City on May 29.

The deadline for naming the final 26-man squad that will take part in Euro 2020 is June 1, but Mancini’s choices are already making fans discuss.

Davide Calabria is one of those players fans would have wanted to see in the team. Many fans, not just Milan’s commented on the FIGC Twitter post that announced the provisional squad, highlighting the omission of the 24-year-old.

His teammate Alessio Romagnoli has also been excluded, with Lazio centre-back Francesco Acerbi who got a spot on the team instead.

Some fans also highlighted Federico Bernardeschi doesn’t deserve to be part of the team given his lack of playing time with Juventus.

The former Fiorentina man played barely 1400 minutes this season: 38 appearances, 13 as a starter, managinig three assists.

However, Mancini has always relied on the Carrara-born winger who played 16 games under the former Manchester City and Inter boss.

What’s your take on Mancini’s picks? Who do you think Mancini will drop?
