Report: Carvajal to miss Euro 2016

A report says Dani Carvajal needs three weeks to recover from the thigh injury suffered in the Champions League Final, putting the defender out of Euro 2016.

AS reports the diagnosis on the Real Madrid right-back, who was forced off part-way through Los Blancos’ penalty shootout win over Atletico Madrid, Danilo coming on in his place.

It’s said that both the medial teams at Madrid and the Spain national team have agreed that Carvajal can’t be considered for France, having been named in Vicente del Bosque’s preliminary squad.

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin is expected to go in Carvajal’s place after del Bosque confirmed he would remain with the group while the extent of Carvajal’s injury was determined.
