Netherlands forward Memphis Depay is set to miss out on Euro 2020 after being eliminated for at least six months with a cruciate knee ligament injury by Lyon.
Depay and Lyon team-mate Jeff Reine-Adelaide, a France Under-21 midfielder, both suffered the very same injury in Sunday’s 1-0 house defeat by Rennes.
Previous Manchester United forward Depay, 25, has actually become one of the Netherlands’ key gamers.
He scored 6 goals and established another seven in Euro 2020 qualifying.
” They must be out of action for a minimum of 6 months,” a Lyon declaration said of Depay and ex-Arsenal student Reine-Adelaide.
The Dutch’s opening Euro 2020 game, against Ukraine, takes location in just under 6 months’ time – on 14 June.
