Injured Giovinco leaves Italy camp

Sebastian Giovinco has withdrawn from the Italian international squad after picking up an injury on Sunday.

The attacker, part-owned by Juventus, suffered a muscle problem in Parma’s 1-0 loss at Lazio yesterday.

Giovinco did travel to Florence to meet up with the rest of the squad, but he has now returned to Parma.

Azzurri medics carried out numerous tests on Monday where it was decided that he wouldn’t be risked for the friendlies against Poland and Uruguay.

Italy boss Cesare Prandelli is already without Milan’s Antonio Cassano after his heart surgery, as well as injured Villarreal forward Giuseppe Rossi.
