The injured Italian defender Leonardo Spinazzola has flown to London with the rest of his teammates to attend the final of Euro 2020 Sunday against England.
Spinazzola walked on crutches and had his left leg bandaged. He will cheer on Italy from the stalls at Wembley Stadium.
Spinazzola, 28, was considered Italy’s best player until he suffered a torn Achilles tendon in the quarter-final match against Belgium, which Italy won 2-1.
Spinazzola underwent surgery in Finland on Monday and his recovery is expected to take about six months.
