Here is a medical update following the recent international break:

Gigi Buffon this morning underwent tests at the city’s Clinica Fornaca and Istituto di Medicina dello Sport medical centres. These identified an area of inflammation in the goalkeeper’s adductor longus thigh muscle. His condition will be monitored on a daily basis.

Claudio Marchisio was also subject to medical examinations at the Clinica Fornaca after sustaining a back problem in Italy’s encounter with Denmark. These ruled out any permanent damage, with the midfielder free to resume training tomorrow.

Mirko Vucinic reported back to Vinovo with flu-like symptoms and will be provided with the required treatment.

Simone Pepe will continue with his individual training programme in order to reach peak physical condition.

Over the past few days, Paolo De Ceglie has felt muscular fatigue in his left thigh and is currently undergoing an individual training programme to regain full fitness.
