Italy [Images] defender Alessandro Nesta has been ruled out of Sunday's World Cup final against France [Images] in Berlin through injury.

"He's definitely not available," Enrico Castellacci, Italy's team doctor, told reporters on Thursday.

Nesta has not played since the last group game against Czech Republic when he picked up a groin injury.
