Florence, March 20 - Italy defender Giorgio
Chiellini will miss Thursday's friendly against Brazil in Geneva
and is doubtful for Tuesday's World Cup qualifier in Malta
because of an ankle problem, the national soccer federation said
Wednesday.
In the final training session before the Azzurri left their
base near Florence for Geneva on Wednesday, coach Cesare
Prandelli tested a strike pairing made up of AS Roma's Pablo
Osvaldo and Mario Balotelli, who has scored seven goals in six
appearances since joining AC Milan in January.
In the practice match he fielded Roma's Daniele De Rossi
with Juve trio Andrea Pirlo, Claudio Marchisio and Emanuele
Giaccherini in midfield.
The back four was made up of Napoli's Christian Maggio,
Juve duo Andrea Barzagli and Leonardo Bonucci, and AC Milan full
back Mattia De Sciglio.
De Sciglio's Milan teammate and fellow full back Ignazio
Abate was rested as a precaution because of a muscle strain.
Italy lead European World Cup qualifying group B with 10
points from four games, four points more than second-placed
Bulgaria.
