On Sunday, the player Federico Chiesa suffered a torn in the cruciate ligament in his right knee and will defraud Juventus and the Italy team in the play-offs for qualifying for the 2022 World Cup, in which he will be able to face Portugal.
“Tests performed this morning showed a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament. A surgical intervention will be needed in the next few days.”, indicates today to Juventus, after reevaluating the player, who was injured on Sunday, on his visit to Roma, coached by Portuguese José Mourinho, in a game that the Turin team won by 4-3.
In the summer, at Euro2020, Chiesa turned out to be one of the key stones in the transalpine team, starting a group stage game, and then in the quarter-finals, semi-finals and final, with two goals scored in the competition, which Italy won.
In qualifying for this year’s World Cup in Qatar, Italy finished runners-up in the group stage, which relegated them to the play-offs discussion, facing Northern Macedonia in the semi-finals in March.
