Domenico Criscito and Andrea Poli have been released from the Italy squad due to injury.
The duo had been named as part of a 30-man training squad ahead of a Euro 2016 qualifier against Croatia and a friendly clash with Portugal.
However, as a training camp at Coverciano began on Tuesday, it was confirmed Zenit’s Criscito and Poli of Milan would not be involved.
Both players will now return to their clubs.
Italy visit Croatia on June 12 before hosting Portugal four days later.
