Injury worries for Perrotta

Published Add your comment

Roma midfielder Simone Perrotta could miss Euro 2008 due to a calf injury sustained in Saturday´s Coppa Italia final.

The 30-year-old limped away from his side´s 2-1 triumph over Internazionale and it is feared the injury is more serious than just cramp, which was the initial diagnosis.

He will undergo further tests at the national team´s training facility in Coverciano on Monday and if no assurances can be given, he may be the one player Italy coach Roberto Donadoni has to exclude from his 24-man provisional squad for the European Championships.
