Barcelona defender Kounde forced off early in France clash

Barcelona defender Jules Kounde was forced off early into France's clash with Austria yesterday.

Kounde was substituted in the 23rd minute of the Nations League tie.

The initial diagnosis doesn't reveal anything serious injury, though it did seem worse when the centre-back left the pitch touching the back of his left thigh.

It should also be noted that he was still able to walk on his own.

RAC 1 says the injury could be serious and could even be a hamstring tear, although an official statement is yet to be made.
