Thomas Meunier ruled out of France clash

The prodigal son returns: Thomas Meunier joins the Red Devils in Germany

The Red Devils are currently preparing to face France in the round of 16 of the European Championship. But on the eve of this match, bad news came from the Belgian camp. Thomas Meunier will not be present.

On the eve of the tournament, the Red Devils played a friendly match against Luxembourg. They won 2-0, but suffered two injuries. Thomas’s injury turned out to be serious, and there was even a thought for a while that his Euro was already over.

Rehabilitation in Belgium

The right-back did not travel with the rest of the team to Germany. But he didn’t go on vacation either. Meunier remained in Belgium, where he has been undergoing intensive rehabilitation in recent days with the help of physiotherapist Lieven Maesschalck.

At first glance, this choice seemed judicious. After all, last weekend, the right-back was able to travel to the Ludwigsburg base camp. He first followed individual training sessions, before returning to training with the group.

New withdrawal

The stars seemed to be aligning. While the last group match against Ukraine came too early, the match against France and the later stages of the tournament seemed within his reach. But this hope proved in vain.

On Sunday, the Federation announced some bad news. It was officially announced that Meunier had not finally made the trip to Düsseldorf, where the French national team will play on Monday. He remained in Ludwigsburg. It therefore seems increasingly likely that the right-back will not take part in this tournament.
