Ousmane Dembélé is forfeited for the rest of Euro 2021 after a knee injury contracted during the Blues match against Hungary. Kylian Mbappé and Antoine Griezmann wanted to show their support for their partner.
Hit in the knee during the draw against Hungary (1-1), Ousmane Dembélé said goodbye to Euro 2021. Forced to withdraw on Monday, the 24-year-old winger will leave the tricolor group even before the match against Portugal . The striker of the France team has received nice marks of attention from several of his teammates including Antoine Griezmann.
“There are dribbles, hooks, goals, injuries … but above all there is the man! Another obstacle to overcome on your way but you will come back stronger, wrote the partner of the winger in selection and Barça. I’m sad to see you leave this Euro, but know that you will be on the pitch with us. “

Mbappé: “You’re stronger than that”
Entering the 57th minute of the match of the France team to Hungary, Saturday in Budapest, Ousmane Dembélé left the field in the 87th minute. If Didier Deschamps did not seem too worried in the first moments after the meeting, the 2018 world champion must finally face yet another physical glitch. Kylian Mbappé also went there from his nice message to his friend of the tricolor attack following this new twist of fate.
“My Brook. A new test but we know each other (sic), you’re stronger than that,” posted the PSG striker in a story on Instagram.
The Blues will remain at 25
Under the regulations established by UEFA for the Euro, the staff of the France team will not be able to call a replacement to replace Ousmane Dembélé. The Blues will therefore end the tournament with 25 players. In the offensive sector, Didier Deschamps therefore has the trio Benzema-Griezmann-Mbappé or Olivier Giroud, Wissam Ben Yedder, Kingsley Coman and Marcus Thuram.
Good news for “Dembouz”, he will be crowned Euro champion if the French team wins the competition on July 11 at Wembley. A consolation prize to which the winger would surely not say no.
