Kevin De Bruyne is a major doubt for Belgium’s Euro 2020 campaign after suffering
two facial fractures in Manchester City‘s Champions League final defeat to Chelsea
on Saturday. De Bruyne was helped off the field in tears after colliding with Antonio
Rudiger on the hour mark in Porto.
It is unconfirmed whether the injury will rule the Belgian midfielder out of Euro 2020.
The 29-year-old wrote on Twitter earlier today:
Just got back from the hospital, “My diagnosis is acute nose bone fracture and left
orbital fracture. I feel okay now. Still disappointed about yesterday obviously but we will
be back.” Belgium’s first match of the Euro is in 11 days’ time against Russia in Saint
Petersburg. Roberto Martinez’s team then faces Denmark and Finland in what should
be a comfortable group for the number one ranked side in the world.
