"I had a small injury, but nothing serious', says Emerson
Emerson Palmieri delivered positive news on his injury status after limping off in the early stages of Italy's win over Finland on Sunday.
The Chelsea left-back pulled up while chasing Teemu Pukki and had to be substituted in the eighth minute of the Euro 2020 qualifying match in Tampere.
The sight of defender Emerson making way would have been worrying for Frank Lampard, who has started him in each of Chelsea's four Premier League games this term.
But the 25-year-old took to social media after the match to quell fears over the severity of the suspected muscle issue.
"Very important victory today guys," Emerson wrote on Twitter.
"Unfortunately I had a small injury, but nothing serious. Let's continue like this!"
Roberto Mancini replaced Emerson with Alessandro Florenzi and later confirmed the move was largely for precautionary reasons.
