Roma confirmed the thigh injury for Daniele De Rossi, but there is still no word about when he will return.
The midfielder had limped off during Italy-France on Thursday, and was forced to return to Rome for some more in-depth exams.
Now the Lupi have released a statement confirming that the clash resulted in an ematoma, meaning a blood accumulation, inside the player's right thigh.
“Today Daniele De Rossi underwent instrumental exams that confirmed a direct trauma with a muscular and sub-cutaneous ematoma in the region of the gastrocnemius muscle in his left leg,” reads the statement.
“The midfielder was forced to step off the pitch in the Nazionale's friendly against France on Thursday night, after an impact with an opponent.
“De Rossi will continue the individual protocol he's been scheduled and his conditions will be evaluated day by day.”
