Guiseppe Rossi, Italy’s best forward, re-injured his ACL on Friday, and is out for six months, including Euro 2012. Cesare Prandelli now has a selection dilemma, and Croatia must be liking their chances of getting out of that group.
Meanwhile, it is more bad news for Villarreal, who are in the midst of a long relegation battle right now. They were considered the 5th best team in Spain at the start of the season, but are in 17th right now, despite a huge win over Malaga. They lost all of their Champions League games this season, and are likely to trade Rossi to an Italian club this summer.
