Luca Marrone’s European Under-21 Championship may already be over after the Juventus man suffered an injury in the 1-0 win over England.
The midfielder limped out of Wednesday’s opening encounter and an ultra-sound scan has confirmed a strain to his right hamstring.
It’s unclear how long the 23-year-old will be out of action for, but the tournament in Israel will end on June 18.
This latest injury is a relapse of a recent problem which the youngster has been struggling with.
