Elmas injury scare for Napoli

Napoli are anxiously awaiting news after Eljif Elmas was taken to hospital for X-Rays after an ankle injury with North Macedonia.

The midfielder suffered a nasty knock to his right ankle during a training session and it’s reported the foot has swollen up.

Elmas was rushed to hospital for X-Rays to check for potential fractures following the collision with teammate Tomislav Iliev.

He has been ruled out of tomorrow’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Latvia.

Napoli paid €16m to Fenerbahce for Elmas this summer and he turns 20 later this month.
