Maurito Icardi suffered a frustrating afternoon at the San Siro, where he could not find the back of the net, despite having numerous chances to do so. His disappointment is further aggravated by an injury he has sustained after the match finished.

Confirmation of this came from the official website of Argentina’s National team, which announced that Inter striker Mauro Icardi will not be available for their upcoming match due to a tendon inflammation in the knee for the former Sampdoria forward. This injury will rule him out from the upcoming friendly against Russia. The Nerazzurri centre forward suffered from this problem during and after the match against Torino. Spalletti spoke in the post-match interviews about the several blows and rough tackles received by the Inter captain in the match today, which seem to have caused this injury. In the Primavera, Andrea Pinamonti and Facundo Colidio will also not join their respective youth national teams due to physical problems. Over the next few days, all three players will be assessed to determine when they will return to action.
