Gica Popescu has been ruled out of the rest of Euro 2000 after being stretched off in the game against England.
The 33-year-old has ruptured a muscle in his left thigh, and according to reports in Romania, the Galatasaray defender will need at least a month to recover.

""Popescu needs four weeks to recover." said coach Emerich Jenei.

This means that 36-year-old Miodrag Belodidici will play against Italy on Saturday, and coach Jenei will also have to find replacements for Dan Petrescu, Ardian Ilie and Cosmin Contra who are all suspended.
