A 10-man medical commission will meet on Monday to determine if Italy forward Antonio Cassano can begin playing again following minor heart surgery.

Cassano's club AC Milan says it asked the Italian Sports Medicine Federation to gather a panel of experts to analyze the striker's condition.

Cassano was hospitalised after falling ill with stroke-like symptoms on the team plane following Milan's 3-2 victory at Roma on October 29, then had surgery six days later to repair a small cardiac malformation.

He resumed training on his own in January and started training with his teammates Thursday, although time is running out for him to make Italy's European Championship squad.
