Euro 2024: Alvaro Morata injured while celebrating Spain’s 2-1 win over France

Spain captain Alvaro Morata has twisted his knee in a freak accident after a security guard slipped and fell into him only minutes after his country qualified for the Euro 2024 final.

Spain were excellent on Tuesday night as Lamine Yamal shone in a 2-1 win over France in the semi-final of the European Championship, MailOnline reports.

However, just moments after the game finished and the Spanish players gathered for their celebrations, a security guard could be seen slipping on the surface of the pitch and smashing into Morata’s knee.

The Atletico Madrid striker was wincing in pain as his knee twisted from the impact and was visibly upset as he left the pitch.

Spain are hopeful that he will be fit for Sunday’s final but face an anxious wait with their skipper due for a scan on Wednesday.

This comes after Morata sparked a storm in Spain’s camp after threatening to quit the national team when the tournament concludes over ‘nonsense’ criticism.

The striker previously admitted it would be ‘easiest’ for him to move abroad because of the poor treatment and laid bare the effect on his family, including his wife and four young children.
