Original title: The Italian captain declared himself the king of the European Cup and the Copa America

On April 26, Beijing time, according to Sky Sports, Italian captain Chiellini will retire from the national team after a friendly against Argentina at Wembley in June.

Italy failed to qualify for this year’s World Cup in Qatar, losing a surprising 1-0 to North Macedonia in the qualifying play-offs, thus missing the chance to pursue the honour. This is obviously an unacceptable result for a team that has just won the European Cup, especially considering that they also missed the last World Cup.

Speaking to the media after Juventus’ 2-1 win over Sassuolo, Chiellini said: “I will say goodbye to the national team at Wembley, where I experienced the pinnacle of my career and where we deserved Europe. cup.”

“I want to say goodbye to the Azzurri with great memories, it will definitely be my last game for Italy.”

The warm-up match was held at Wembley, which was a historic stage for Italy to win the Euro 2020. In addition, their opponent Argentina was the champion of the 2021 Copa America held at the same time. The battle at the top of Europe and the United States, objectively speaking, is also very suitable for the Italian captain’s retirement battle after missing the World Cup.

Chiellini played 116 times on behalf of the Italian team, tied with Pirlo for fifth in history, ahead of them are De Rossi, Maldini, Cannavaro and Buffon.

At the club level, Chiellini’s contract with Juventus will expire this summer, and the Italian captain has not yet made a final decision on whether to renew or retire.
