Italy’s head of medical staff, Enrico Castellacci, evaluated the situation from his point of view during the press conference, “As you know, Paletta left the camp due to lumbar sciatica, while Osvaldo arrived here with a slight adductor muscle injury and had to leave too.” On the other hand, Giorgio Chiellini was suffering with pain in his left calf after this morning’s training session. “He’s already had an MRI scan,” added Castellacci. “It’s nothing serious, but together with the coach and Juventus’ medical staff, we have decided to rest him for a couple of days. He will miss Thursday’s match, but we’ll try to have him back in time for Tuesday’s game against Norway.”
