Catania have lost their appeal to have their 2-0 Serie A defeat against Internazionale overturned.

The Sicilian club made an official complaint to the Lega Calcio about World Cup-winning defender Marco Materazzi playing in the fixture, when days earlier he had pulled out of Italy´s friendly clash with Portugal because of injury.

A statement said: "Materazzi answered the national team call-up, therefore his participation in the Catania game is considered legitimate."
