AC Milan crock Pirlo ruled out three weeks by Italy medical staff

Italy's medical staff have ruled out AC Milan midfielder Andrea Pirlo for up to three weeks.

Pirlo pulled up during Friday's training session with a calf strain.

"We will take the medical tests one day at a time and keep a constant monitor on his situation," explained Italy medical chief Enrico Castellacci.

"For this type of injury you generally expect to be out for 15-20 days, but it depends on the individual physique of the player.

"We think he could recover for a few games. It's up to the Coach to decide, as all we can do is give a medical opinion."
