Bargnani Blow For Italy

06.07.2005

Italy have suffered a major setback with the news that Benetton Treviso's Andrea Bargnani will miss the upcoming Men's Under-20 European Championship in Moscow because of injury.

The Italian Basketball Federation confirmed that Bargnani will not travel with the rest of the Azzurri outfit to Russia on Wednesday after he sustained a foot injury that will keep him out for the tournament.

The 2.09m power forward did play in last weekend's warm-up games against France but damaged his right foot during training on Monday.
