The announcement comes straight after the acting sub-commissioner of the Italian FA (FIGC), Alessandro Costacurta, revealed that Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte and Zenit St Petersburg boss Roberto Mancini rejected the chance to fill the vacant position.
 
The Azzurri have been on the lookout for a new head coach since the departure of Gian Piero Ventura, who failed to lead the European giants to the World Cup for the first time in 60 years.
 
Italy U21 coach Luigi Di Biagio, who represented the Italian national team 31 times as a player and featured at the 1998 and 2002 FIFA World Cups, as well as the UEFA European Championship in 2000, has now been appointed as interim coach of the senior side.
 
The former Internazionale and AS Roma midfielder has been in charge of the Azzurri's U21 team for the past five years.
 
 
Italy play Argentina in Manchester on 23 March before facing England at Wembley four days later.
