Gianluca Mancini is eagerly packing his bags, set to travel to Coverciano in the coming hours.

The Roma defender – after being initially excluded from Luciano Spalletti’s list – will join the Italian national team for the upcoming fixtures with North Macedonia and Ukraine.

Mancini is going to replace injured Alessandro Bastoni who has abandoned the training facilities in Coverciano and made his return to Inter Milan.

This will be Mancini’s second call-up of the season with the Italian national team.
