Players from six clubs -- Fiorentina, Genoa, Inter Milan, Lazio, AS Roma and Sassuolo -- are self-isolating because of COVID-19 cases in their squads.

The Italian football federation (FIGC) said they would join up with the national team "when agreed with the relevant health authorities."

Lazio forward Ciro Immobile is among those players. Last season's European Golden Shoe winner has had conflicting results for tests for COVID-19.

The FIGC confirmed on Friday that Mancini tested positive for COVID-19.

TheY said in a statement that the 55-year-old was asymptomatic and in self isolation at his home in Rome.

Italy have three fixtures in the next two weeks -- a friendly against visiting Estonia on Wednesday followed by Nations League matches at home to Poland on Nov. 15 and in Bosnia on Nov. 18.
