Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard, injured on Sunday against Portugal, did not participate this Thursday in the last training session of the Belgian team, the day before the quarter-finals match of the European Championship against Italy in Munich.
‘KDB’ has slightly touched the ligament in his left knee while the Real Madrid player suffers from a hamstring problem.
The latter had however participated in part of Wednesday’s training, according to the Belgian press.
On Monday, coach Roberto Martínez estimated “50%” the chances of seeing his two talented attackers in the game against Italy.
Defender Jason Denayer, absent from Wednesday’s practice, did participate normally in Thursday’s session.
The Belgians flew to Munich this Thursday, with De Bruyne and Hazard in their delegation.
In a press conference, Martinez said that we will have to wait until the “last minute before making a decision” on his availability for Friday.
«First of all it will be a medical decision, in the afternoon. And then a football decision, “he said.
“It will be difficult to see both of them 100%,” the Spanish technician had previously told Belgian television RTBF. (AFP)
