Putellas ruled out of Euros in huge blow to Spain

Spain were the favorites to win the Women’s Euro 2022, but now they have been dealt a huge blow as their star Alexia Putellas suffered an ACL tear.

Update:

Spain suffered a huge loss when their team captain and current Ballon d’Or holder, Alexia Putellas, sustained a torn ACL and was ruled out of the Women’s Euro 2022. The midfielder for Barcelona was injured during a training session on Tuesday. Scans later confirmed that she had suffered a ruptured ACL in the left knee.

Before the unfortunate news, Spain was widely considered the favorite to win the whole competition, mainly due to the star power of Putellas. Now, they will be without Putellas as well as without veteran forward Jennifer Hermoso, who is also dealing with knee issues.

Spain is set to open their Group B campaign on Friday against Finland.
