After leading Spain to a crucial victory over France in the Euro 2024 semi-final, Alvaro Morata faced an unfortunate injury incident during the post-match celebrations.

The match saw goals from Lamine Yamal and Dani Olmo secure Spain’s spot in the final, with Morata as the captain.

As the players celebrated after the game, a security guard inadvertently collided with Morata, resulting in what appeared to be a knee injury for the forward.

The incident occurred as Morata stood at the edge of the celebrating group, and the security guard slipped and twisted Morata’s knee in the process.

Sport broadcasted the footage of the incident, with concerns raised about the severity of Morata’s apparent injury.

The clash left Morata visibly in discomfort, frequently seen crouching down and clutching his knee as he limped around.

Despite the injury scare, Morata has been a key figure in Spain’s journey to the Euro 2024 final, demonstrating his importance on the field.

In the semi-final against France, La Roja initially fell behind to a goal from Randal Kolo Muani, but Yamal and Olmo’s strikes turned the tide in Spain’s favor.

Despite France’s relentless second-half pressure, Spain managed to hold on to their lead, securing their place in the final where they will face either the Netherlands or England in Berlin.

Now, the spotlight falls on Morata’s fitness as he awaits assessment following the collision with the security guard.

As Spain’s captain and a key player, Morata’s potential absence in the final could impact Spain’s chances of lifting the Euro 2024 trophy.
