Cristante leaves Italy squad

Roma midfielder Bryan Cristante has left the Italy squad due to a groin issue.

The Giallorossi player has, according to Il Corriere dello Sport, left the national retreat due to the problem and returns to the Italian capital.

The medical staff of Italy and the Giallorossi have decided not to risk aggravating the problem and prevent it from evolving into an injury.

The 26-year-old, capped nine times by the Azzurri, has only missed one Serie A game due to injury this term, when he struggled with back pain in February.

Lorenzo Pellegrini will also undergo checks after having suffered an adductor problem against Napoli in Serie A last weekend.
