Italy midfielder Simone Perrotta is expected to be fit for next week's game with Georgia.
Perrotta had been doubtful for the Euro 2008 qualifier with Georgia next Wednesday after picking up a knock in training.
It was feared that Perrotta may face a spell on the sidelines with ankle and leg problems, but the injuries have responded to treatment.
The Roma midfielder is unavailable for this weekend's game with Ukraine because of suspension.
The news of Perrotta's recovery will come as a boost to Italy coach Roberto Donadoni as they look to get their qualifying campaign back on track after a disappointing start.
