Spain dealt huge blow ahead of UEFA Women's EURO

Big blow for UEFA Women's EURO title contender as star player ruled out of tournament

July 5, 2022 By Michelle Bonsu
Spain have been dealt a big blow with an injury to one of their star players ahead of this summer's tournament.

In 2021, Alexia Putellas made history, as she became the first female player to win the UEFA Women's Player of the Year Award, the Ballon d'Or Féminin, and The Best FIFA Women's Player all in one year.

That is in addition to the wide range of team titles she has won during her time at Barcelona, which includes five league titles, six Copas de la Reina, and one UEFA Women's Champions League title.

However, Putellas, who was expected to be a standout player at this summer's UEFA EURO Women's competition, unfortunately will not be able to take part. According to reports, the 28-year-old has sustained an ACL injury and is set for six months on the sidelines after undergoing surgery.

This comes as a huge blow for the Spanish women's squad, as she was not only set to captain the squad as the nation's most capped player, but was anticipated to play a vital role as La Roja seek to try to get their hands on the EURO title in their fourth tournament appearance.

Safe to say, Spain have a tricky task ahead, especially without Putellas in their ranks. They first take on Finland, but things will get much tougher as they will later have to face Germany, who are the most decorated side in this competition before concluding their group stage campaign against Denmark, who finished as runners-up at the last edition of this tournament.
