Italy's De Rossi ruled out of Uruguay clash

Italy's De Rossi ruled out of Uruguay clash

Italian veteran midfielder Daniele de Rossi has been ruled out of Tuesday's crucial match against Uruguay in the third round match of Group E due to a muscle injury.

De Rossi's ability to play in the next match, which will be a do-or-die match for both Italy and Uruguay, is very slim, team doctor Enrico Castellacci said.

The 30-year-old player suffered a muscle injury in his right leg during Italy's surprising 0-1 loss to Costa Rica Friday.
