AFP </div><div> <strong>Budapest</strong>: La France a perdu Ousmane Dembele pour le reste de l'Euro 2020 après que les radiographies ont montré que la blessure au genou de l'ailier de Barcelone ne guérirait pas à temps, a annoncé lundi la Fédération française de football.
Dembele, 24, was injured in the dying minutes of the 1-1 draw with Hungary in Budapest on Saturday after coming on as a substitute. Sunday night radios showed that he would not return before the end of the Euro.
“The recovery time is incompatible with keeping him in the squad,” said the FFF.
Dembele came off the bench in France’s two Euro matches.
He replaced Adrien Rabiot for the dying seconds of the opening victory over Germany and replaced Rabiot again after 57 minutes in Budapest with France losing and hitting the post with a shot before limping in the 87th minute.
Under UEFA rules which only allow the replacement of goalkeepers during the tournament. France cannot call a replacement for Dembele, who has 27 caps.
France started with eight forwards in their 26-man squad, including Bayern’s Kingsley Coman, a type of player similar to Dembele who has yet to play a Euro minute.
After leaving Borussia Dortmund for 135 million euros ($ 160 million) in August 2017, the second highest amount paid by Barcelona for a player, the ‘Mosquito’ suffered a series of hamstring injuries. leggings. This season he has only had one injury break and has made 44 club appearances, scoring 11 goals.
Dembele, who was part of the French team that won the World Cup in Russia in 2018, had a good run until Euro 2020, scoring in a World Cup qualifier against the Kazakhstan in March and against Wales in a friendly in early June.
Coach Didier Deschamps has other concerns ahead of France’s final group game against defending champions Portugal on Wednesday in Budapest.
Defender Benjamin Pavard took a hit against Hungary and starting forwards Karim Benzema and Antoine Griezmann as well as Coman and substitute defender Lucas Hernandez are treating injuries.
