Gianluigi Buffon has given Italy an injury scare ahead of the World Cup after picking up an ankle problem in Juventus' defeat to AC Milan.
The World Cup-winning goalkeeper was forced off at the break of Juventus' 3-0 defeat with the knock.
The full extent of the injury is unclear, but the news will come as a major worry for Italy coach Marcello Lippi as he prepares to name his final 23-man squad for the trip to South Africa next week.
The game could also be Buffon's last appearance for Juve as reports suggest he could move on this summer after a disappointing campaign for the Bianconeri.
