Real Madrid’s Camavinga injured with France: what is the injury and how long is he out for?




Real Madrid midfielder Eduardo Camavinga went down injured following a clash with Ousmane Dembélé during a training session with the French national team. Reports from France say that he was forced to leave the group session, with the player possibly in line for an early return to the Spanish capital to undergo tests.

Camavinga arrived at the national team headquarters after a vein of fantastic form for Real Madrid. He had substituted compatriot Aurélien Tchouaméni in the ex-Monaco player’s absence due to a fractured foot, occupying the pivot role in Ancelotti’s side to perfection. Recent Games for Real Madrid showed the player’s class at the base of midfield, a role that the Italian coach of the club had initially thought would not be ideal for a player of his qualities.

As such, expectations were high for Camavinga ahead of the international break, where France will take on Gibraltar and Greece as they look to make huge strides forward in Euro 2024 qualification.

The early signs are positive for Camavinga and his injury.
