Domenico Criscito
Italy defender Domenico Criscito has been ruled out of Euro 2012 as he is under investigation in the country's latest match-fixing scandal.

Italian Football Federation (FIGC) vice-president Demetrio Albertini announced on Monday afternoon that the Zenit St Petersburg player will not be included in the travelling party.

Criscito was questioned by police on Monday morning at Italy's training headquarters in Coverciano, Florence, as part of an investigation carried out by Cremona prosecutors regarding a match-fixing probe.

"Criscito will not be with us at the European Championship," Albertini said in a press conference.

"He is in a hurry to end this current situation and that is his aim.

"He is disappointed to have caused this situation although he reiterates he has nothing to do with it."

Criscito, a former Genoa player, had been expected to be in Cesare Prandelli's 23-man squad for the tournament in Poland and Ukraine.
