Moments after assisting with the operation to correct Milik's ACL, the team doctor, Alfonso De Nicola, snapped a picture with his colleagues in the background, presumably still working on the Polish forward's knee.
A statement from the team read: "The operation lasted 40 minutes and was perfectly successful.
"The Azzurri striker was injured during the match between Poland-Denmark and sustained a complete rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
"Milik will stay a few days in the clinic and then will begin his rehabilitation at the Technical Centre in Castelvolturno."
Milik, who will require up to six months to recover, took to Twitter to update his followers on the successful procedure.
