Nicolo Zaniolo injures himself during Italy's Nations League match against the Netherlands in Amsterdam Monday

It is wretched luck for the 21-year old who only returned in the summer after the identical injury on his right knee suffered in a January defeat to Juventus

Italy's emerging star Nicolo Zaniolo faces surgery and months of recovery with a cruciate ligament injury to his left knee having missed much of this year with the same problem on the right, his Serie A club AS Roma announced Tuesday.

Zaniolo limped off in the first half of Italy's Nations League victory over the Netherlands Monday in Amsterdam, immediately raising fear over the seriousness of the problem.

It is wretched luck for the 21-year old who only returned in the summer after the identical injury on his right knee suffered in a January defeat to Juventus.

Before the injury Zaniolo had been unlucky not to open the scoring with an acrobatic bicycle kick.

Italy went on to beat the Dutch 1-0 thanks to a Nicolo Barella header.
