Spain concluded their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign with a victory at the Jose Zorilla stadium against Georgia. Luis de La Fuente's team had already secured the top spot in the group with a three-one win over Cyprus.

The match against Willy Sagnol's side served as a preparatory test ahead of the tournament scheduled for June 2024.

Despite the relaxed atmosphere maintained by La Roja, tension rose when Cremonese's Luka Luchoshovili fouled midfielder Pablo Gavi in the 19th minute.

The Barcelona midfielder spent several minutes on the field holding his knee and eventually had to be stretchered off after going down unchallenged, clutching the same knee seven minutes later.

According to Goal, the 19-year-old, visibly emotional and reduced to tears, suffered damage to his anterior cruciate ligament, leading to a minimum six-month spell on the sidelines.

Amid the sombre mood caused by the 2022 Golden Boy Award winner's injury, a Real Madrid forward has taken to social media to show support for the young midfielder.

Los Blancos' Joselu Mato, who is teammates with Gavi in the Spanish national team, took to his Instagram to cheer up the Barcelona star following his injury.

In a Spanish post, he conveyed,

"Estamos contigo, Gavi. Volverás más fuerte que nunca" (We are with you, Gavi. You will come back stronger than ever).

Gavi's injury once again highlights the demanding football schedule that players are currently subject to.

It should also be recalled that Real Madrid recently lost the duo of Vinicius Jr and midfielder Eduardo Camavinga to long-term injuries during the international window.
