Gavi’s serious injury: there are fears of a cruciate fracture

One more victim in the senselessness of the national team break. This is the midfielder Pablo Martín Páez, Gaviwho had to withdraw this Sunday from the match against Georgia (3-1) in Valladolid—at the close of the qualifying phase for Euro 2024—after suffering a “major injury” to right kneeas reported by the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) after the first examination of the Barcelona midfielder in the changing rooms of the José Zorrilla stadium.

In the absence of the pertinent tests being carried out, everything indicates that the player he could have torn his cruciate ligament: If so, he would be out for between six and eight months, which could have said goodbye to the season with FC Barcelona and even the European Championship next summer in Germany.

The Barça footballer was injured in a fortuitous action after controlling a ball and noticing something in the joint at the time of taking support. He had received a tackle from behind that hit his right knee, from which he seemed to have recovered, when in the next action in which he came into play, Gavi lost his supporting leg with a bad gesture.

The culé player felt such intense pain that, scared, he looked for help looking at the bench. He was close to the band and the team’s doctors arrived quickly, who They asked for the change immediately.

Gavi went to the locker room on his own two feet, unable to hold back the tears and covering his face with the gloves that covered his hands. He received the gesture of encouragement from the two selectors, Luis de la Fuente and Willy Sagnol. His teammate Joselu Mato approached to console the Andalusian midfielder.

Gavi is the second injured for Spain in the last two qualifying matches for Euro 2024. In Cyprus he suffered a muscle injury Mikel Oyarzabal last Thursday and now, three days later, the one who has fallen is Gavi.

Ferran Torresscorer of the provisional 2-1 in the second half, had a nice gesture when celebrating the goal, dedicating it to his Barcelona teammate, aware of the seriousness of the injury.

In short, another victim in this national team break, which has also left two Real Madrid players with serious injuries: the Brazilian forward Vinicius Junior and the French midfielder Eduardo Camavinga.
