Italy hit by injury blow

Italy are likely to be without five key players for the Confederations Cup third-place play-off against Uruguay.

The Azzurri face the South American champions in Salvador on Sunday, but Cesare Prandelli could be without a number of his starters.

Reports suggest that Andrea Barzagli and Andrea Pirlo will almost certainly miss the match, whilst Claudio Marchisio will be assessed this weekend following a calf injury.

Giorgio Chiellini and Daniele De Rossi may also sit out the match due to 'muscle fatigue'.
