Euro 2020: Germany’s Marc-Andre ter Stegen will miss next month’s European Championship after the Barcelona goalkeeper said on Monday he needed to undergo a procedure on his knee.
The 29-year-old played the full 90 minutes in Sunday’s 2-1 home defeat by Celta Vigo which ended Barcelona’s La Liga title challenge with one game left in the season.
“I have decided together with the medical team of the club that I will do a complementary intervention on my knee. I’m sad that I will miss the Euro 2020 this summer with Germany,” Ter Stegen wrote on Instagram.
Euro 2020: Zlatan Ibrahimovic ruled out of Euro 2020 with knee injury
Adding to the list of stars who will miss out Euro 2020, Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has also been ruled out of the competition, the Sweden national team confirmed on Saturday.
Zlatan had pulled up with a knee injury during AC Milan’s 3-0 win against Juventus in Serie A, and as a result, he has now been ruled out of the upcoming Euro Cup. “Today, Zlatan has informed head coach Janne Andersson that his injury will stop him from participating in the European Championships this summer,” Sweeden Football’s official handle tweeted.
“Get well, Zlatan, we hope to see you on the football field again soon,” it added.
Zlatan was competing for a ball when he went down with what appeared to be a non-contact injury. He then persisted for a couple of minutes but he ultimately needed to be replaced by Ante Rebic, Goal.com reported.
