Fortaleza, Brazil (Sports Network) - Mario Balotelli has been ruled out of Italy's Confederations Cup semifinal match against Spain on Thursday due to a thigh injury.

"The examinations carried out this afternoon (Sunday) in Fortaleza on Mario Balotelli showed a grade-one tear in the quadriceps muscle of the left leg," the Italian Football Federation said in a statement. "The player will not be available for the semifinal against Spain on Thursday, June 27 and in the coming days his condition will be evaluated for the match on the 30th (either the final or third-place play-off)."

Balotelli, 22, has managed to score two goals in the tournament, helping Italy get out of Group A with a second-place finish behind Brazil.
