Injury scare for Milinkovic-Savic

Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic picked up a tendon injury during today’s 5-1 friendly win over Al-Shabab.

The Serbian limped off in Austria and Sky Sport Italia claim he’ll be out for several weeks with a tendon issue connecting the right thigh to the hip.

It puts his presence in the Serie A opener against Sampdoria on August 25 in doubt.

Felipe Caicedo, Jony, Joaquin Correa, Ciro Immobile and Bobby Adekanye were on the scoresheet, but Denis Vavro’s error allowed Al-Shabab to get one back.
