Ousmane Dembele ruled out of Euro 2020 through injury
France winger Ousmane Dembele has withdrawn from Didier Deschamps’ squad with an injury that will keep him sidelined for the rest of Euro 2020.
The Barcelona man was a second-half substitute in France’s recent 1-1 draw with Hungary but managed just 30 minutes before being forced back off with what appeared to be an injury to his right knee.
Dembele was ruled out for France’s final group game against Portugal, but there had been some hope that he would make it back in time for the knockout stages.
Unfortunately, RMC Sport state that further checks on Dembele have revealed that he has suffered damage to a tendon in his knee and will not be fit in time to return this summer.
The latest issue comes as a huge blow to Dembele, who looked to have finally shaken off his fitness issues last season with Barcelona.
