Daniele De Rossi
31-Year-Old Midfielder Roma Serie A
De Rossi suffered a calf injury during Italy's loss to Costa Rica on Friday and team doctor Enrico Castellacci said he is "highly unlikely" to play against Uruguay, Goal.com reports.
Castellacci added "There are no lesions to the soleus muscle, but it's an injury that requires a few days to recover from. He felt pain during the second half and it intensified towards the end of the game. The tests showed bruising on the calf, that will very likely stop him from playing against Uruguay." It would be a tough blow for the Italians, who need at least a draw to advance to the knockout stage.
