Italy have confirmed an upcoming friendly with Albania for next month in Genoa, with match profits set to go to the flood-hit northern city, the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) said on Tuesday.

Italy have yet to play Albania but will meet them on November 18th, two days after facing Euro 2016 qualifying rivals Croatia in a crucial Group H clash in Milan.

The match was scheduled to be held at the Enio Tardini stadium of Serie A side Parma, but has been moved by FIGC president Carlo Tavecchio to boost the city of Genoa, which has been hit by heavy flooding in recent days.

Croatia top Group H after three games with Italy, the only other unbeaten side in Group H, also on nine points, three ahead of Norway and six ahead of Bulgaria.
