Italy Captain Fabio Cannavaro was ruled out of the upcoming Euro 2008 championships after suffering a left ankle injury according to Ansa press agency.

The replacement for the 34-year-old Real Madrid defender - capped 116 times - will be announced soon, the Italian Football Federation informed Ansa on Monday.

Cannavaro suffered the injury during a training session at their Austrian base, just hours after Italy arrived in the country. He underwent scans at a hospital in Modling, 15 kilometres south of Vienna, after colliding with Giorgio Chiellini during the practice match and was subsequently transferred to another hospital in Vienna.
