Giovinco out for 15 days

Sebastian Giovinco will miss Juventus’ game against Udinese and Italy’s two World Cup qualifiers because of injury.

The forward picked up an ankle issue in Saturday’s 2-0 win over Parma. Tests have revealed a first-degree twist and minor ligament damage.

Reports in Italy this afternoon are suggesting that the summer signing will be sidelined for the next 10-15 days.

He should therefore be back in action for the Old Lady in time for their Week 3 game against Genoa.

The Azzurri will start their 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign with games against Bulgaria and Malta on September 7 and 11 respectively.
