Lucas Hernandez to miss Euro 2024 after sustains knee injury

Lucas Hernandez sustained a knee injury in Paris Saint Germain’s defeat to Borussia Dortmund this week, and will now miss Euro 2024.

France have been dealt a blow ahead of Euro 2024 following confirmation that Paris Saint-Germain’s Lucas Hernandez will miss the tournament.

Hernandez sustained a knee injury and had to be taken off in the 42nd minute of PSG’s Champions League defeat to Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday.

And on Thursday, PSG announced Hernandez had sustained an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury and will now need surgery.

“Lucas Hernandez suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee after coming off injured during the Champions League match,” a statement read.

“An MRI scan carried out today confirmed the diagnosis made by the club’s doctors on Wednesday evening.

“The player will undergo surgery in the next few days.”

Hernandez suffered a similar injury during the last major international tournament, the 2022 World Cup, in which France finished as runners-up to Argentina.

The 28-year-old subsequently posted on his official Instagram account.

“When I signed with PSG, I made a promise that I would give my heart and soul to this team and this is what I have done ever since. Unfortunately, during last night’s match I ended up with an injury,” Hernandez said.

“I pushed myself back onto the field and tried to keep on fighting for our team, but it was not possible. My comeback will be stronger than ever before.”
