Sebastian Giovinco will miss Juventus’ game against Udinese and Italy’s two World Cup qualifiers because of injury.
The forward picked up an ankle issue in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Parma. Tests have revealed a first-degree twist and minor ligament damage.
Reports in Italy this afternoon are suggesting that the summer signing will be sidelined for the next 10-15 days.
He should therefore be back in action for the Old Lady in time for their Week 3 game against Genoa.
The Azzurri will start their 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign with games against Bulgaria and Malta on September 7 and 11 respectively.
