Untimely Knee Injury Sees Milik Ruled Out Of EURO 2024

Milik suffered the injury in Poland's 3-1 pre-tournament friendly win over Ukraine on Friday.

The Juventus striker was assisted off the field by medics and will play no part in Germany.

"During the friendly match against Ukraine, the Polish national team suffered a number of injuries, one of which - that of Arkadiusz Milik - unfortunately proved serious enough to exclude the footballer from the final tournament of the European Championships," said the PZPN in a statement on its website.

"The player will return to his club and will undergo an arthroscopy of the knee joint."

Milik has made 73 appearances and scored 17 goals for Poland since making his debut in 2012.

The Poles are in the same group with France, Austria and Netherlands.
