Lucas Hernández’s Injury: Impact on PSG and France’s National Team at Euro 2024

Lucas Hernández, world-leading left back for PSG and the France national team, has suffered a serious injury. His absence will significantly affect both the club and France’s national team’s ambitions in the upcoming period.

The news of Lucas Hernández’s injury has caused a major shock for PSG and France fans. During the first leg of the Champions League semi-final against Borussia Dortmund, Hernández had to leave the field early due to injury. Now, the worst fears have become reality, Lucas Hernández will miss many months of play and will be absent not only for the second leg against Dortmund but also for the Euro 2024 finals.

This is a heavy loss for PSG, who need Hernández in the tense race for the Ligue 1 championship with Lille. Furthermore, Lucas Hernández’s absence will also affect PSG’s defensive strength in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich or Real Madrid on May 28th.

For the French national team, Lucas Hernández is a key component. He contributed significantly to Les Bleus winning the 2018 World Cup and is always the number one choice at the left back position. Hernández’s injury will certainly challenge the French team in their conquest of the Euro 2024 title for the third time.

PSG coach Luis Enrique said: “Lucas is a very important player for us, both on and off the pitch. Lucas Hernández is a leader in the locker room and a pillar of the team. Hernández’s injury is a great loss, but we will have to adapt and find ways to win without him.”

Meanwhile, France coach Didier Deschamps shared: “Lucas Hernández is an extremely important player for us. Hernández is one of the best left backs in the world, and his absence will leave a big gap. However, we have a quality squad and are confident we will play well without him.”

Lucas Hernández’s injury could cost PSG the Ligue 1 championship and failure in the Champions League final. For the French team, this is also a big obstacle in the journey to conquer the Euro 2024 championship.

However, both PSG and the French team have quality squads with many world-class stars. They will have to find ways to adapt and play more collectively to compensate for Hernández’s absence. This will be a big challenge for the coaching staff and players, but with a united spirit and determination, they can definitely overcome this difficulty.
