Internazionale defender Marco Materazzi could be facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines after picking up a thigh injury during Italy´s 3-1 friendly defeat to Hungary.

The 34-year-old got hurt when crashing into an opponent and national team doctor Andrea Ferretti said immediately after the game: "We´ll need a couple of hours to decide how long he´ll be out. It could be several weeks."

There are fears Materazzi, the hero of Italy´s World Cup final win over France last year, may not return until 2008.
