Roma face anxious Under injury wait

AS Roma

Roma are awaiting news on the full extent of the hamstring injury suffered by winger Cengiz Under on international duty with Turkey.

The 22-year-old is now in his third season in Rome after joining from Istanbul-based outfit Basaksehir in his homeland in summer 2017.

Under has hit 15 goals in 66 appearances for the Giallorossi, including one in two Serie A outings this term in the 3-3 draw against Genoa.

But there is a good chance he will be facing a stint on the sidelines having returned form the Turkey training camp carrying an injury.

Having been ruled out of Turkey’s Euro 2020 qualifiers against Andorra and Moldova, Under will undergo tests on his hamstring to determine how serious the problem is.

But there is a good chance that he will be ruled out of Roma’s next Serie A clash against Sassuolo on September and their opening Europa League group clash against his former club Basaksehir.

It is the latest injury blow for Roma, who have recently lost Leonardo Spinazzola, Davide Zappacosta and Diego Perotti to respective issues.
