Nico Schiappacasse makes Atletico Madrid squad

Uruguayan attacker Nico Schiappacasse is in Atletico Madrid's squad for the trip to Osasuna.

With Filipe Luis and Fernando Torres out of Atletico Madrid's trip to Osasuna on Sunday, Schiappacasse will travel with the squad to Pamplona.

Suffering from thigh and hip injuries, respectively, the duo join Augusto Fernandez and Alessio Cerci on the absentee list, with Lucas Hernandez set to deputise at left-back.

Covering for Torres, therefore, is the 17 year old striker Schiappacasse, although Atleti first made sure to confirm with FIFA that the youngster was eligible to appear for the first-team amid their ban for registering new player.
