Italy midfielder Thiago
Motta is a slight doubt for Sunday's Euro 2012 quarter-final
against England because of a hamstring strain, team doctor
Enrico Castellacci told reporters on Friday.
Castellacci said the player had been able to train but they
would monitor his fitness "in the coming days" before deciding
whether to risk him.
Brazil-born Thiago Motta started all three group games as
the most advanced midfielder and would probably be replaced by
Riccardo Montolivo, with Antonio Nocerino and Alessandro
Diamanti also in the running.
Castellacci also said defender Giorgio Chiellini, out of the
Kiev game with a thigh injury, is battling to be available later
in the tournament and reserve centre-back Angelo Ogbonna has a
minor knee problem but should be fit for Sunday.
