Aquilani leaves Italy’s squad with head injury
Midfielder Alberto Aquilani has left Italy’s training camp due
to a head injury.
Aquilani was injured in the first half of a 3-0 win over Estonia
in a European Championship qualifier on Friday and made a brief
visit to a local hospital. He was quickly discharged and rejoined
the squad to return to the Azzurri’s training base in Florence but
was then sent home.
Coach Cesare Prandelli did not immediately call up a replacement
for the friendly against Ireland in Liege, Belgium, on Tuesday.
However, Torino defender Angelo Ogbonna was added to the squad.
