Northern Irish striker Kyle Lafferty got injured with Euro 2016 closing in fast. After one of the clashes at a training, Lafferty injured his groin and remained lying on the lawn, leaving the field later only with the help of the doctors.
Thus he may not be able to participate in the opening Euro 2016 match against Poland. The match will take place on June 12.
Lafferty scored 7 goals in 9 test matches before Euro 2016.
However, the team’s coach Martin O'Neill hastened to reassure the fans, saying there was nothing serious. Perhaps the striker still will be able to show up in the first match at Euro 2016 against the Poles (football.ua).
