De Bruyne provides reassuring injury update following nasty collision with Rudiger

Kevin de Bruyne has given a reassuring injury update following his collision with Antonio Rudiger on Saturday evening. 

The Belgian suffered a nasty injury during Manchester City's Champions League final loss to Chelsea at the Estadio do Dragao Stadium, and is now a doubt for the Euros. 

In a social media post, the midfielder revealed he was taken to hospital following the incident, but it is not as bad as earlier feared. 

“Hi guys just got back from the hospital,” De Bruyne wrote on Twitter. “My diagnosis is acute nose bone fracture and left orbital fracture. I feel okay now. Still disappointed about yesterday obviously but we will be back.”

De Bruyne appeared concussed following the challenge and was replaced by Gabriel Jesus with City trailing 1-0, thanks to a Kai Havertz goal. 

Pep Guardiola's side could not find a way back into the game, losing to the London club, who won their second Champions League title. 

The injury is a major concern for Belgium, who start their Euro campaign on Saturday, 12 June against Russia. 

They then face Denmark on 17 June before a final game on 21 June against Finland.
