Real Madrid’s Spanish midfielder Eduardo Camavinga was forced to leave the training session of his country, France, yesterday in Clairefontaine due to a knee injury after a contact with his fellow Paris Saint-Germain winger, Ousmane Dembélé. The French team, which qualified for the 2024 European Cup finals scheduled in Germany, is preparing to face its host, Gibraltar, on Saturday in Nice, and its host, Greece, next Tuesday, in the final two rounds of the Group Two competitions.
The injury increases the anxiety of Real Madrid supporters, especially in light of the many injuries he suffers and the busy schedule during the end of this November and next December.
Camavinga’s possible absence on Saturday, and the withdrawal of his Royal Club colleague Aurelien Chouamini due to a broken metatarsal, increases the chances of seeing Paris Saint-Germain’s young midfielder Warren Zaire-Emery start for the first time, perhaps alongside Juventus’ Italian midfielder Adrien Rabiot.
If he plays on Saturday, Zaire-Emery will become the youngest French international at the age of 17 years, eight months and 10 days since 1911, when record holder Felix Vial played at the age of 17 years, two months and 15 days in a match against Luxembourg (4-1) on October 29, 1911. He died at the age of 20 during World War I.
