    GRAPHIC VIDEO: Chievo’s Federico Mattiello suffers gruesome leg injury

    Italian soccer prospect Federico Mattiello's promising young career could be cut short after suffering a horrific leg injury during a Serie A game on Sunday.

    The 19-year-old Mattiello, currently playing on loan at Chievo from Juventus, appeared to snap his tibia when his right foot got tangled on the turf in a 50-50 ball challenge with Roma's Radja Nainggolan.

    The fateful play that leaves Federico Mattiello (l.) with a broken leg.
    Roma midfielder Leandro Paredes angrily confronted Mattiello immediately after the play, but once the serious nature of the injury became evident - and confirmed by the extremely graphic video - players on both teams were visibly shaken as they watched their colleague get stretchered off the field.

    Chievo team doctors rush to Federico Mattiello aid after he suffers a gruesome leg injury.
    While too early to know the extent of the injuries, Matiello, who has represented Italy at the youth level, will surely miss at least the remainder of the season - and possibly more.

    I call bullshit. Faking injuries in "football" is as common as fistfights are in hockey.

    Kevin Ware's break was harsh. I remember watching that live.

    Soccer players are utter pussies. They dive and flail around on the grass like they were shot at the slightest contact. The dude should've sucked it up and gotten back in there.
