New stop for the midfielder during the finish before the match with the Czech Republic
There is no peace even in the national team for Stefano Sensi: the midfielder accused a muscle strain in the adductors in the last training session in preparation for tomorrow’s friendly match against the Czech Republic. Problem that will force the Inter player to return home and forgo Euro 2020. In his place Matteo Pessina is ready to enter the official squadi.
Sensi should remain in the blue training camp until Friday morning, then he will undergo further checks and then he will leave the group.
Mancini, at the press conference, had announced the presence of Sensi in the starting line-up and now obviously he will have to review his choices. With Verratti still unavailable for a few weeks, in midfield remained Cristante, Jorginho, Locatelli and Pellegrini. Situation that will force the coach to review his choices and recover Pessina, initially left out of the 26 called up for the European Championship but kept in retirement as a “twenty-seventh” player in the case of substitutions in the final list for Europeans.
Sensi’s conditions, fresh from a troubled season to say the least, were already closely monitored by the Italian doctors. With Inter this year Sensi, between muscle injuries and Conte’s choices, played only 21 matches between Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League for a total playing time of 635 minutes.
