Italy's De Rossi very likely to miss Uruguay gam

Sunday, June 22, 2014 by YAHOO Sport

NATAL, Brazil (AP) -- Italy's team physician says midfielder Daniele De Rossi will ''probably'' miss Tuesday's key World Cup match against Uruguay due to an injured calf muscle.

Enrico Castellacci says that De Rossi was injured during the second half of Friday's 1-0 loss to Costa Rica and needs ''several days'' to recover.

De Rossi played a full 90 minutes but was seen limping after the match.

Italy needs at least a draw against Uruguay to advance from Group D.

The Azzurri are already without midfielder Riccardo Montolivo, who broke his leg in a pre-tournament warm-up match.

Andrea Parolo could be a possible replacement for De Rossi.
