Soccer: Roma's Destro risks two-month stoppage

Rome, January 25 - AS Roma could lose striker Mattia Destro for "about two months" after tests showed Friday he tore his right meniscus in Wednesday's 2-1 Italian Cup semi-final first leg win over Inter. "As well as spraining his ankle, the forward suffered a lesion to the meniscus of his right knee," the Roman club said in a statement. The Ascoli Piceno-born striker, 21, joined Roma from Siena last year and has scored four goals in 10 games this season. He has four Italy caps and one goal for his country. Roma are seventh in Serie A, 15 points behind leaders Juventus.
