"As part of the periodic controls undertaken by the FIGC on the Italy coaching staff ahead of the coming break for UEFA competitions, head coach Roberto Mancini tested positive for COVID-19," a statement from the governing body read.

"He remains asymptomatic and, in compliance with the active guidelines, the Azzurri head coach went into self-isolation at his home in Rome," it added.

Mancini's men host Estonia in a friendly on Thursday (AEDT) before welcoming top of the table Poland on 16 November (AEDT) and travelling to Bosnia and Hercegovina three days later in the final fixtures of their UEFA Nations League group campaign.
