West Brom star tipped to miss Euro 2016 with knee injury

West Bromwich Albion star Chris Brunt could miss the upcoming European competitions after picking up a knee injury in the 3-2 win over Crystal Palace, Express reports.

The 31-year-old is now waiting on the results of his scans, but it is believed that the player damaged his cruciate knee ligaments.

If Brunt did indeed damage the mentioned ligaments, he will surely be unable to feature with the Northern Ireland national team in the tournament.

He fell awkwardly a few minutes before the half-time whistle when his team managed to go 3-0 up before a Connor Wickham double almost saw Palace complete a comeback.

Baggies captain Darren Fletcher also came out to admit that he hopes the damage to Brunt’s knee is minimal as he wishes his teammate a speedy recovery.

“We just hope that the scan proves that he’s back for us soon and ready for Northern Ireland in the Euros as well,” he said.

“We care for our players and want them to do well for West Brom, but we think about other things as well. We’ll wait and see with fingers crossed.”

The versatile left-back has already featured in 22 league matches this term, so far managing to provide three assists in the process.
