Lazio Star Immobile Suffering as a Result of Azzurri’s World Cup Play-off Loss

Ciro Immobile is not himself following Italy’s disastrous World Cup play-off loss to North Macedonia.

The 32-year-old Italian striker was one of the most criticised figures in the Azzurri squad following the 1-0 defeat in Palermo last month, with many calling for him to be immediately dropped from the team. He has consistently been a figure of ridicule by Italy fans, although it’s undeniable that his form isn’t the same between club and country.
