Materazzi could be back for Inter Milan before Christmas

Despite a fracturered cheekbone, Inter Milan's Marco Materazzi could be back in action by December 20.

Materazzi had surgery on Wednesday after club medics urged the defender to have the procedure.

The injury was a result of a clash betwen Materazzi and Werder Bremen's Swedish striker Markus Rosenberg during Tuesday night's Champions League clash.
