After receiving the results of a previous test (presumably positive), Lazio striker Ciro Immobile decided to take another Covid-19 test. However, he will most likely not be allowed to play for Italy’s national team against Poland, in the UEFA Nations League later today.
Ciro Immobile has been tested several times in recent weeks after he reportedly received a positive antigen test. Immobile hoped that he would get to play for his country over the international break, but instead, he has been forced to remain in Rome.
The striker is confused and tired with the entire charade concerning all the tests; as a result, he decided to take matters into his own hands.
It has been reported by Radiosei that Ciro Immobile has privately tested himself with the help of two laboratories in Rome. He opted to do the PCR test (polymerase chain reaction test), as he was able to complete it from home. The results should have been available the same day of the testing, which is today.
Unfortunately, the results of these new private tests will not count towards his participation in the game against Poland. But in case the results come back negative, Immobile might be able to play against Bosnia.
The two private tests will help him have another confirmation about his diagnosis, but will not help him get back on to the field. Official tests made by the authorities are needed for Immobile to get back in the game.
