Kevin De Bruyne could miss Euro 2021 after horror injury

The chances of Kevin de Bruyne playing in Euro 2020 will become clearer in “the next four or five days”, says Belgium coach Roberto Martinez.

Manchester City’s De Bruyne fractured his nose and left eye socket in a clash with Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger during Saturday’s Champions League final.

Belgium’s first game is against Russia on 12 June, before they face Denmark (17 June) and Finland (21 June).

“I’ve spoken to Kevin and he was quite positive,” said Martinez.

“We’ve got to be very cautious, but we will get more clarity in the next days.

“We don’t know if we can use him in the first game. I cannot give an answer because I don’t have any medical facts right now, we are still assessing the injury and over the next four to five days we expect clarity.

“We are very fortunate that even though he has a double fracture, he doesn’t need surgery. An operation would have made it impossible for him to play in the European Championship.”
