Juan Cuadrado missed Colombia’s 4-0 defeat of China on Tuesday after suffering a thigh injury.

The Juventus winger has been given permission to return to Turin early for scans.

Unfortunately for the Italian champions, the news comes at a time when they were planning to change formation. According to reports, Massimiliano Allegri was hoping to use a 3-4-3 formation, which was likely to include Cuadrado as a wing-back.
