Italy captain Giorgio Chiellini will be retiring from the national team in June, following their game against Argentina at Wembley. The centre-back is the fifth-most capped player in the history of the Italian national team, alongside Andrea Pirlo. He has been one of the captains since 2012. 

After failing to qualify for two consecutive World Cups in 2018 and 2022, the 37-year-old will be calling it a day on his time with the Azzurri. 

Giorgio Chiellini will be retiring at the site of his greatest national team memory 

“If I’m fine, I’ll play and say goodbye to the national team at Wembley, where I reached the peak of my career,” he told DAZN.


“It would be great to say goodbye to the Azzurri shirt with a celebratory match like the one with Argentina. For the national team, it will be the last time.” 

There is a good chance that Giorgio Chiellini will be leaving Juventus at the end of the season as well. His contract is on the verge of expiring, and he is yet to decide where he will play his football in the coming year. 

“My love affair with Juventus is not ending, it will never end,” said Chiellini. “Of course, from now to the end of the season I do have to evaluate everything, talk to my family about what is best.

“Let’s reach fourth place [in Serie A] first and win the Coppa Italia, then we’ll sit down with my two families – at home and Juventus – to figure out what is best for everyone.”
