Sarabia and Laporte doubts for Spain against Italy

by | Jul 3, 2021 20:04

Pablo Sarabia is very unlikely to face Italy in the UEFA EURO 2020 semi-final, while Aymeric Laporte is also in doubt for Spain.

It will kick off at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday at 20.00 UK time.

The Spaniards were forced into extra time and even a penalty shoot-out before squeezing past 10-man Switzerland in the quarter-final.

Sarabia went off at half-time and there are reports he was diagnosed with a micro-lesion to the adductor.

If confirmed, it’s incredibly difficult to see him recover in time for Tuesday’s match.

This is a blow for Luis Enrique, because the 29-year-old PSG winger scored two goals at EURO 2020, against Slovakia and Croatia, as well as providing two assists.

The Spain squad returned to training at the Ciudad de Futbol today and the only other player to miss out was Laporte, who worked in the gym.

This is reportedly due to fatigue, as he is the only player to have played every single minute of Spain’s EURO 2020, which saw two games go to extra time.
