Spain could find Germany without key defender if they defeat Georgia in Euro 2024 knockout clash

Should Spain defeat Georgia in their RO16 fixture on Sunday night, they will set up a blockbuster quarter-final showdown against Euro 2024 hosts Germany. Julian Nagelsmann’s side defeated Denmark 2-0 on Saturday, with Real Madrid defender Antonio Rudiger producing a man of the match performance.

Rudiger was a colossus for the Germans, although there is a chance that he misses their quarter-final against Spain/Georgia. As reported by MD, he was seen limping in the mixed zone post-match, which places him as a slight doubt for the last eight, with that game kicking off in five days’ time.

Rudiger had been nursing a slight muscle problem going into the match against Denmark, so it could be that he suffered a flare-up. For now, no details are known about this latest injury issue.

It would be a massive blow for Germany to be without Rudiger, but equally, it would boost either Spain or Georgia, whoever progresses from their round of 16 clash on Sunday night.
