Italy right back Panucci exits training with apparent right knee injury

Right back Christian Panucci exited Italy's training session Friday with an apparent right knee injury.
The AS Roma defender received treatment on the side of the field for about 10 minutes, then got up and walked without limping into the locker room. No further details were immediately available.
The oldest member of Italy's squad at 35, Panucci is fighting Gianluca Zambrotta for a starting spot in Italy's team to play the Netherlands at the European Championship next Monday in Berne. If he is unable to play, Zambrotta will likely start at right back with Fabio Grosso on the left.
Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro was ruled out of Euro 2008 after injuring his ankle in the Azzurri's opening training session last Monday.
