Lorenzo Pellegrini to join Italy after injury in Roma-Atalanta

Andy Mattioli

Similarly to his Roma teammate Paulo Dybala who has decided to fly to Argentina despite an injury suffered in the warmup minutes away from kick-off to Roma-Atalanta, Lorenzo Pellegrini will join Roberto Mancini’s Italy squad for the upcoming Nations League engagements, reports Corriere dello Sport.

The Italian midfielder sustained a muscle injury during yesterday’s loss to the Bergamaschi but continued to play despite the pain in his left leg.

His condition and the extent of the injury will be assessed by Italy’s medical staff and a decision will be made that will determine whether the Roma captain will stay or leave international duty.
