Criscito, who is the biggest name in an on-going match-fixing investigation in Italy, withdrew himself from further consideration as the Azzurri put together their final Euro 2012 roster, ESPNSoccernet reports.

The ugliness and the rumors lead to Criscito heading for Russia in 2011, but the 25-year old cannot shake this investigation. Without an arrest imminent, all parties involved decided it was best to avoid the potential distraction of having Criscito in Poland and the Ukraine.

Certainly this does damage to Criscito's reputation as most players generally would go to their hometown club even if it meant making a little less money.
