Morata picks up a knee injury after colliding with a security guard

Spain’s Alvaro Morata appeared to have picked up an unfortunate knee injury during Spain 2-1 France at Euro 2024. A security guard was spotted colliding with the Spanish captain during the semi-final victory celebrations.

It was a great night for La Roja as they swept past the French with an impressive display in Munich. While Randal Kolo Muani opened the scoring after just nine minutes, it didn’t take long to get a response from Luis de la Fuente’s men.

Indeed, young star Lamine Yamal added to his fast-growing legend by curling in an absolute beauty to make it 1-1 only 11 minutes later. In doing so he become the youngest-ever goalscorer in European Championship history. Before half-time, Dani Olmo had put Spain 2-1 up, showing great feet to find the space to fire off a shot which went in via a deflection of Jules Kounde.

The second half was a little calmer with the Spaniards keen to hold onto their lead. Despite French efforts, the score would remain 2-1 with Kylian Mbappe and co crashing out after a largely disappointing tournament.

After the victory, the Spanish players unsurprisingly went to the corner of the stadium where all their fans were. However, a pitch invader ran in amongst them trying to take a selfie of himself amid the celebrations.

As stewards and security guards rushed to get to the scene, one of them collided with Spain captain Morata who seemed to hurt his knee.
