Giorgio Chiellini Set To Retire



Giorgio Chiellini Set To Retire: After Italy’s friendly versus Argentina at Wembley in June, legendary Italian footballer Giorgio Chiellini will retire from international football.

After Juventus’ thrilling late win over Sassuolo on Monday, Chiellini told DAZN, “I’ll say farewell to the national team at Wembley, where I experienced the height of my career winning the Euros.”

“I’d like to leave the Azzurri with a pleasant memory.” That will undoubtedly be my final match with Italy.”
The 37-year-old defender has 116 caps for the Azzurri and was instrumental in their European Championship triumph last summer.
