Defender Giorgio Chiellini will miss Italy's European Championship quarter-final against England on Sunday, their team doctor has confirmed.

But Enrico Castellacci refused to rule out the Juventus centre-back recovering from a left-thigh injury if the Azzurri progress further.

Chiellini, the most experienced defender in Italy's squad with 53 caps, was forced off during the second half of Monday's 2-0 win over Republic of Ireland, which secured a last-eight place.
