Eliminated with Portugal from a Euro where he did not shine, João Félix will also have to undergo surgery.
Title holder and European champion in 2016, Portugal will not make the double. At the end of a game that they dominated against Belgium on Sunday evening, the Seleção das Quinas lost 1-0 and were eliminated in the round of 16 of this Euro. If Ronaldo shone during this competition, the same cannot be said of João Félix.
The attacking midfielder will have played only 35 short minutes during the competition. Physically reduced and overtaken in the hierarchy by Diogo Jota, Bernardo Silva or André Silva, the Atlético de Madrid player had to wait for the round of 16 to finally make his first appearance. His only one too, because even if he was able to bring a little dynamism to the attack, it was not enough.
Two months of absence
It must be said that an ankle problem bothered him for a while. In order to remedy this, the 21-year-old Portuguese will even have surgery, according to information from Marca. He is expected in Porto this Thursday to finally be treated for this injury which has been crippling him for several weeks now. He will also have to observe a period of rest.
The Spanish media speaks of a long absence of two months. He will therefore miss the pre-season with his club and above all, he will not be present for the competition before the beginning of September. He should therefore miss the first matches of the season in La Liga, probably also in the Champions League. Often relegated to the bench last season, the young player will therefore have to work harder to return to his best level.
