Morata fracture ruled out

Reports suggest Alvaro Morata suffered heavy bruising to his fibula while playing for Spain, but ruled out fractures.

The Juventus striker was stretchered off during Friday evening’s game with Luxembourg.

There were initial fears it was a serious injury, as a fracture would have him sidelined for up to four months.

According to Spanish paper As and Sky Sport Italia, X-Rays in hospital ruled out a fracture or lesion.

It is simply a very heavy bruise to the calf and fibula, but that still leaves a concern as to whether he’ll be able to face Inter in Serie A next weekend.

Manchester City star David Silva also went off injured with a sprained ankle during Spain’s 4-0 victory.
