Uruguayan Hernandez set to miss Italy match

Uruguayan striker Abel Hernandez was ruled out of next Tuesday's friendly between the Copa America champions and Italy because of a left thigh injury which will see him on the sidelines for up to five weeks.

The 21-year-old - a member of the victorious Copa America squad - will also miss several Serie A matches for his club side Palermo, for whom he has scored three times this season.
