Clearly, this international truce is causing trouble. After Haaland, Zaire-Emery, Camavinga or Vinicius, another player left due to injury. Opposed to Georgia in the qualifiers for Euro 2024, Spain lost its midfielder Gavi, who left the pitch grimacing.
It was in the twenty-second minute that the scene took place. After contact with the Georgian Loshoshvili, the 19-year-old from Barcelona collapsed on the pitch, holding his right knee. A worrying scene, as knee injuries can mean long-term unavailability. We must now wait for the doctors' verdict, which may or may not reassure Gavi and FC Barcelona fans.
According to the Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo, the Spanish medical team “fears the worst omen: rupture of the cruciate ligament”. The Spanish newspaper Sport, for its part, reports that other “tests to know the real extent of the injury” will be carried out soon. FC Barcelona, for its part, fears “that its cruciate ligaments may be affected”. If this were the case, such an injury would cause him to miss the entire rest of the season, and would threaten his participation in Euro 2024.
