Kevin De Bruyne has provided update on his injury after Belgium’s win over Denmark.

On Thursday the Red Devils picked up a 2-1 over Denmark in the second matchweek of the Euro 2020. Denmark opened the scoring in the beginning of the match, however as soon as De Bruyne came on to the pitch everything changed. The Manchester City playmaker registered an assist as well as a goal for his country to pick up crucial three points.

After the game De Bruyne has talked about his injury sustained during the Champions League final against Chelsea, which also prevented him from playing in Belgium’s Euro opener vs Russia.

“I don’t feel anything on the left side, like after a visit to the dentist,” said the Belgian. “My nerve is very badly affected, which could take six months. It’s not a comfortable feeling, but the most important thing is that I can play.

“The last two months have been up and down with minor injuries. After that fracture, it was a bit of a wait. But luckily I came back the fastest way. There was very good intensity [vs Denmark], then I felt it. But I’m glad I was able to play.”

Belgium’s next game is against Finland on Monday, June 21, at the Saint Petersburg Stadium, Russia.
