Italy midfielder Gianluca Zambrotta could miss his side's World Cup opener against Ghana on 12 June after suffering a thigh injury.

The 29-year-old could be sidelined for at least two weeks after sustaining the injury in training on Sunday.

The Juventus player will also miss out on two warm-up friendlies against Switzerland and Ukraine.

Team doctor Enrico Castellacci said: "The player will stay at the training camp and not travel to Switzerland."
