Zaza doubt for Sweden clash with knee injury.

Valencia forward Simone Zaza is a doubt for Italy’s World Cup qualifier with Sweden after he was forced to cut short Thursday’s training session due to a knee injury.The 26 year old will have flight to feature in Gian Piero Ventura’s 27-man squad to Stockholm on Thursday afternoon, but the Italian FA (FIGC) said in a statement that he has suffered a “relapse of a persisting problem in his left knee.”Italy play the first leg of their playoff on Friday and the return match in Italy on Monday as the two nations battle it out for a place at next summer’s World Cup in Russia.The former Juventus man would otherwise be expected to partner Ciro Immobile in the Italy attack in Solna on Friday night, with Inter Milan’s Eder regarded as the first alternative should the Valencia man miss out.The in-form forward who has netted nine goals already in 11 La Liga outings for Valencia this season, has now earned his first call to the Italy squad since 2016.That form had made him favourite to partner Immobile, who is top scorer in Serie A with 14 goals in 11 games, against Sweden.
