France’s Ousmane Dembele exits Euro 2020 after injury blow

France forward Ousmane Dembele has been ruled out of Euro 2020 with an injury, the French football federation said on Monday, in a blow to the world champions’ ambitions.

The 24-year-old came on for Adrien Rabiot in the 57th minute but hobbled off holding onto leg, and was replaced by Thomas Lemar shortly before full-time.

It is a blow for France who won’t be able to replace Dembele, who also made a one minute cameo during their opening game victory over Germany.

Ousmane Dembele has been plagued by injuries since joining Barcelona from Borussia Dortmund for £135.5m back in August 2017.

In Dembele’s first three seasons at the Nou Camp he only made 75 appearances largely due to to persistent and niggling injuries.
