Osvaldo injured and an INTERnational update

It's the international break and lo and behold, there's an injury...

Bad news on the injury front, Interisti.

Dani Osvaldo was injured during Italy training and will be out for 25-30 days with an adductor strain.  Reports initially said that the injury is a second degree strain, but according to Sky Sport Italia, the injury may be more serious than initially thought.  According to Sky reporter Alessando Alciato, Osvaldo might need at least a month to recover from the injury.

This puts Inter in a tight spot, as the squad was already thin regarding strikers available.  Mauro Icardi and Rodrigo Palacio are the only true first team attacking options, and hopefully Federico Bonazzoli and/or George Puscas will be ready to get some action.

The lack of strikers was something I feared as the season started.  So much so that I brought it up twice: here and here.

Internationals are upon us again, and here is a handy visual from Inter to keep track of who is playing where over the next few days:
