Euro 2020: Dembele Ruled Out Of Tournament With Injury

Ousmane Dembele has left France’s Euro 2020 squad after suffering an injury in the 1-1 draw with Hungary.

France had only brought on Dembele as a substitute earlier in the second-half before he was struck down with a knee issue.

And Dembele was sent home from the squad on Monday after being ruled out for the remainder of the tournament.

France face Portugal on Wednesday knowing a defeat may leave them out of the top two in Group F.

According to Cardena Ser, he could miss pre-season with further tests expected to confirm a two-month absence.

Dider Deschamps said after the game: “It’s a hit to the tendon, behind the knee, it will be necessary to check.

“He played on, he attempted a cross and felt some fairly significant discomfort. I brought him off. We will have to watch it.”

Dembele, 24, had enjoyed a largely injury-free season with Barcelona to earn his place in the squad.

Having missed all of Les Bleus’ matches in 2019 and 2020, he earned a recall in March of this year.
