Barzagli set to miss Confederations Cup?

Andrea Barzagli - Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli could miss out on the Confederations Cup due to his nagging Achilles tendon injury.

The Bianconeri star helped guide the club to their second consecutive Scudetto.

However, the 32-year-old has been unable to train regularly due to the reoccurring injury.

With Cesare Prandelli set to name his 23-man squad on Monday, there is growing concern that Barzagli will be left off the team if he unable to show he can return to being 100% fit.

The tournament runs from June 15-30 and sees Italy in Group A with Mexico, Japan and Brazil.

Adriano Boin

- A passionate F.C. Internazionale supporter since the young age of 10, my love for the club came about on a family trip to Italy after their signing of Roberto Baggio. Much to the dismay of my father (a Milan fan) my love for the club only grew stronger and has taken me on trips to Genova and Boston to see my club in action. The greatest of these journeys was being blessed by incredible luck (to which this day I still cannot comprehend) which allowed me to travel to Madrid, see the 2010 Champions League Final in the flesh and experience a week-long trip that will probably never be surpassed. Feel free to add me on Twitter to talk about Inter, Italy or calcio in general @Boin44
