Ciro Immobile has continued to be plagued by poor form and his struggles at Lazio may cause him to miss out on a spot in the Italy squad for the upcoming European Championship.

The 34-year-old striker, who was named Azzurri captain by Luciano Spalletti during his first international break in charge back in September, was again kept quiet as the Biancocelesti fell in a 2-0 loss to Juventus in the first leg of the Coppa Italia semi-finals on Tuesday.

Immobile has struggled to impress this season with Lazio, netting just six goals across 26 games, and it’s hard to tell whether he’s truly on the decline or if he’s simply struggled with fitness and poor form at club level.

Immobile at risk

TMW highlights how it’s looking increasingly unlikely that Immobile will make the cut for Spalletti’s 23-man Italy squad for the upcoming European Championship in Germany, with his poor form continuing to limit his decisiveness in front of goal.

His last appearance for the Azzurri came back in September and he’s facing competition for a spot from Giacomo Raspadori, Mateo Retegui, Gianluca Scamacca and Moise Kean.

Valentin Castellanos is also threatening Immobile’s starting spot in the Lazio squad and recent rumours suggested that a move to Inter could be on the cards in the summer.

5 thought on “Italy captain Immobile looking likely to miss out on Euro 2024”
  1. He was on a knife edge anyway.

    My 6 forwards for the Euros would be: Chiesa, Orsolini, Politano, Raspadori, Retegui, Scamacca. Not great, but there’s little to choose from.
    Probably Gnonto, Immobile, Pessina, Zaccagni as back-up.
    Zaniolo hasn’t done enough.

  2. Immobile missing out would be a blessing in disguise. Even when he was scoring goals for lazio he couldn’t hit a barn door for Italy.

  3. Why does the press continue to pick on this guy? Never made sense to me. Seems like a good dude.

  4. Thank God Spalrttinsees what many of us see, a has been! He couldn’t hit the target of his hair depended on it. He runs around like a chicken without a head and does nothing to score. When he has a chance he shanks them! No thanks bye bye. Forza Retegui you came right on time for us!!
