Giaccherini put in four crosses and scored the opening goal on one of his four shots in Monday's 2-0 win over Belgium.

Giaccherini was deployed as part of a midfield three, and he wriggled free of the Belgian defense to expertly control a long pass and tuck it past Thibaut Courtois to open the scoring in the 32nd minute. Despite the strong start, Italy are not expected to be one of the higher-scoring sides in the tournament, so Giaccherini's play in the middle of the field will be crucial to generating offense as the tournament rolls on. If Monday's performance is any indication, he should once again play a pivotal role in Friday's match versus Sweden.

Giaccherini is expected to miss three weeks of action due to a thigh injury, Football Italia reports.

Giaccherini joined Serie A side Bologna on Monday on a season-long loan.

Giaccherini was finding playing time very tough to come by this season, so he'll head to Italy to get more first-team touches, though it's unclear what will happen after the season.

Giaccherini is expected to be available Saturday against Leicester City after recovering from an ankle injury, the Newcastle Chronicle reports.

Giaccherini has missed three months due to the ailment, and given the long layoff, it's unlikely he gets a start, particularly with how well Jermain Defoe and Connor Wickham are playing up front.

Giaccherini picked up a knock to his ankle during Sunderland's scoreless draw with Burnley on Saturday, though manager Gus Poyet relayed that it may not be serious. "I think it is less than what we thought, it looked bad because he cleared the ball and had a tackle on his ankle, but he was telling me in the dressing room that he doesn't think it is bad," Poyet said.

Will Buckley came on for Giaccherini in the 73rd minute after he suffered the injury. Even if the injury is not serious, Giaccherini will not likely play in Tuesday's Capital One Cup match against Stoke City, but may be available next Saturday against Swansea if his ankle responds to treatment.
