Pavoletti injury doubt for Italy

Cagliari striker Leonardo Pavoletti is in doubt for Italy’s games against Portugal and USA due to a muscular problem.

The Nazionale host Portugal in the Nations League at San Siro on Saturday evening.

Pavoletti trained separately from the rest of the squad today, as he was suffering from an adductor issue.

Italy have already lost Federico Bernardeschi to injury and Pavoletti could follow if he doesn’t recover quickly.

The 29-year-old has scored eight goals with one assist in 12 competitive games for Cagliari this season.
