Injury relapse forces Spain to be without another key player for Euro 2024

Over the weekend, it was confirmed that Spain will be without Isco Alarcón for Euro 2024, and they have now lost another piece of this summer's tournament puzzle: Jose Gaya.

Gaya had been on his way back from a hamstring injury in recent weeks, but his grief caught up with him just 11 minutes into his debut for Valencia in a 3-1 defeat to Girona on Sunday, as he suffered a relapse of the same problem.

According to Relevo, Gaia's chances of reaching the Euro are now very slim. He would have been in Luis de la Fuente's squad alongside fellow left-back Alejandro Grimaldo, but he is now set to miss a second successive major tournament through injury, having also been ruled out of the 2022 World Cup.

Girona's Miguel Gutierrez is likely to be the best-placed player to replace Gaya in the Spain squad that De La Fuente will announce next Tuesday.
