Italy players to wear black armbands in honour of fallen soldier

Italy's players will wear black armbands tonight in honor of a fallen soldier killed on duty in Afghanistan.

Manuele Braj, who was 30 years old and married with an eight-month-old baby, died in an explosion at a police training camp in Adraskan on Monday.

The Azzurri have been given the all-clear to wear black armbands during tonight's semi-final against Germany.
