Fears that Spinazzola suffered a torn Achilles versus Belgium

John Solano

On the day of José Mourinho’s arrival, Roma are holding their collective breath following Italy’s victory over Belgium.

Left back Leonardo Spinazzola, who has been one of the best performers of the tournament, may have suffered a torn Achilles tendon, according to Sky Sport.

The 28 year-old fell to the pitch in agony late in the fixture, unable to walk on his own. He was eventually carted off with tears streaming down his face, creating a heartbreaking scene.

The Italian national team’s medical staff immediately examined Spinazzola and worry that he may have completely torn his Achilles tendon.

Further examinations and scans will be required, but Spinazzola was unable to put pressure on his left leg. If the tendon is completely ruptured, it would rule the former Juve man out for the majority of Roma’s upcoming campaign.
