Three days after the European Championship debut, the Spanish women's soccer squad suffered an unexpected setback. Alexia Putellas is the current Ballon d'Or winner and franchise player for the team headed by Jorge Vilda. This injury occurred during the last session of training at the National Sports Center of the Abbey of Bisham, and it threatens his participation in the grand tournament of selections of the Old Continent.
Barca's midfielder would be out of action for at least two weeks due to this illness. He would also miss the games against Denmark, Germany, and Finland. This would make it difficult for him to compete in the Barca quarterfinals.
Alexia's injury adds to the list of injuries plaguing Spain's preparations for the European Championship. It was first the grade II sprain to Jennifer Hermoso’s right knee. This was in principle going to be the offensive referee of the Spanish team. Salma Paralluelo, a young Salma, was unable to make the call because of trauma to her soleus. Lucia Garcia and Mariona Caldentey have already experienced discomfort in England, though not serious.
