Donnarumma out of Euro qualifiers

AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma will miss Italy’s Euro 2020 qualifiers against Greece and Bosnia next month after his club confirmed on Monday he had suffered a hamstring injury.

The 20-year-old, who has 12 caps for the national side, picked up the problem twenty minutes into Milan’s final Serie A game of the season, a 3-2 win over SPAL on Sunday.

“Donnarumma has undergone medical exams to verify the extent of his injury, showing damage to the goalkeeper’s right hamstring muscle,” the seven-time European champions said in a statement.

An issue like this can take up to a month to heal and Donnarumma was not named in Italy coach Roberto Mancini’s 33-man squad for the Azzurri’s next two European qualifiers in Greece on June 6 and against Bosnia in Turin on June 11.

AC Milan failed to qualify for the Champions League after finishing fifth in Serie A this season, and will play in the Europa League for a third straight campaign.
