The Belgian midfielder, not spared from physical disturbances, injured his right leg. He appeared limp and very marked when he returned to the bench after being replaced by Raheem Sterling (65th). The doctors put ice around his ankle.
Unsure of the semi-finals?
A few minutes later, it was Kyle Walker who was forced to give up his spot earlier than expected (73rd). The English side seriously won the duel with Rennan Lodi. He was able to take his place before he was told to stay. Replaced by Nathan Acke, he left the lawn limping, frustrated by the abandonment of his teammates.
This could be a muscle injury. It remains to be seen whether Walker and De Bruyne will be reinstated for the semi-finals against Real Madrid (return on 26 April or 27 April, 3 or 4 May).
Phil Foden could have been seriously injured at the start of the match. Victims of a violent charge from Felipe (12th), the young midfielder played the rest of the match with a large bandage around his skull.
