AS Roma are relieved to find out that striker Edin Dzeko did not break his right hand while on international duty with Bosnia-Herzegovina on Thursday as previously thought.
The 29-year-old, who opened the scoring for his country in their 3-1 Euro 2016 qualifier loss to Belgium on Thursday, had reportedly suffered a broken right hand during the clash, though it seems like his injury is not as serious as originally feared.
According to TuttoMercatoWeb.com, the Bosnia-Herzegovina international underwent a series of tests to determine the length of his injury following the match and found that there were no fractures in his hand.
The striker is expected to appear in his country’s next Euro 2016 qualifier at home against Andorra on Sunday and will hopefully remain fit for AS Roma’s next Serie A clash with Frosinone on September 12.
Dzeko has scored one goal and provided one assist in his two Serie A appearances this term thus far.
