Capello faces keeper crisis

AS Roma goalkeeper Francesco Antonioli is a major doubt for the visit to Group C rivals KRC Genk.
AS Roma goalkeeper Francesco Antonioli is a major doubt for Wednesday's UEFA Champions League match against KRC Genk after twisting his ankle over the weekend.

KO looms
The 33-year-old has been included in Fabio Capello's squad for the Group C tie in Belgium but today had to miss training to nurse the problem sustained in Sunday's win at Brescia Calcio.

Injury list
With Antonioli's deputy Ivan Pelizzoli recovering from injury, Capello could be forced to hand a debut to youngster Carlo Zotti against the Belgian champions. Capello is already without the injured Aldair, Leandro Cufre, Diego Fuser and Marco Delvecchio.
