The former Juventus forward was visibly in pain as he hobbled away from his celebrating teammates and the fanfare.

So far, there have been no reports of any significant injury to the 31-year-old, and coach de la Fuente will be hoping to have his captain fit for the tournament's final against either England or the Netherlands.

Morata’s barren run continues

Despite Spain securing a victory in their clash against France, Morata again endured a night to forget, as he witnessed his barren spell in front of goal extend to five games.

The forward, who, according to data courtesy of FotMob, had found the back of the net six times in his previous 10 Euro tournament appearances, has so far managed to score only once in the opening fixture against Croatia in the 2024 edition of the showpiece.
