Italy forward Mario Balotelli was forced to leave Monday’s training session with a fitness problem.
The Manchester City man reportedly complained of slight discomfort in his right knee and was given permission by Azzurri coach Cesare Prandelli to leave the session early.
According to the Italian team’s medical staff, Balotelli has suffered a minor muscle overload and is expected to resume full training on Tuesday.
The news comes on the same day that Italy found out Andrea Barzagli could spend up to 20 days on the sidelines because of a calf problem.
Prandelli’s men will begin their Euro campaign on Sunday against Spain before taking on Croatia and Republic of Ireland.
