Italy coach Roberto Mancini is positive for COVID-19, so his assistant Alberigo Evani will be on the bench against Estonia, but he hopes to return for the Nations League.

The CT tested positive yesterday, as confirmed by a FIGC statement, and is self-isolating at home.

He is asymptomatic, so it’s hoped he can make a quick recovery and test negative in time to sit on the bench for the Nations League fixtures.
