Rosicky leaves Czech Republic vs. Italy with injury

The Arsenal midfielder appears to have a thigh strain.

It appears Tomas Rosicky has left the Czech Republic's World Cup qualifier against Italy with an injury. The early word is that it's a thigh strain of some minor severity, but as always with Rosicky, a relatively minor injury can end up actually being much longer.

So he wasn't carried off on a stretcher or anything of the like, but until more actual information it's really hard to write it off as an unserious issue. Even as his form has improved over the past couple of years Rosicky has missed time from breakdowns, so hopefully this doesn't turn into a thing that lasts too long.
