Tests have confirmed that Inter striker Edin Dzeko suffered a muscle strain but not a serious tear when he left the pitch against AC Milan.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Bosnian has avoided a serious injury but that his participation for his national team in an upcoming World Cup qualifier against Finland is a doubt.

Dzeko had to be substituted during the second half of the derby against Milan when he pulled up after a sprint and immediately signalled to the bench that he was unable to continue.

The 35-year-old was subject to tests when he convened with the rest of his national team, and the Nerazzurri’s medical staff have been in contact with those of the Bosnian national team.

The tests determined that there had been no tear to the striker’s muscle but that he is dealing with some muscular fatigue and strain.

Accordingly, Dzeko’s participation in Bosnia’s first match of the international break, against Finland, is a serious doubt, as he looks to recover through rest and therapy.

He will, however, aim to be back for his country’s second qualifier of the break against Ukraine and in time for the Nerazzurri’s matches after the break.
