Big shock for Germany’s EM group opponent Spain: world footballer Alexia Putellas has suffered a cruciate ligament rupture in her left knee and has to pause for a long time. This was announced by the Spanish association on Tuesday evening.

The 28-year-old FC Barcelona midfielder sustained the injury in training on Tuesday, and a diagnosis in a London hospital has now provided clarity. It will be a heavy blow for Spain, who play Germany in Brentford, London, on July 12. Alexia is the central figure in the Spanish team. In January of this year, she was named World Player of the Year 2021 after winning the Champions League, league and cup treble with Barca. (dpa)
