The journey of the young Spanish midfielder, Pedri Gonzalez (21 years old), in the Euro 2024 finals has ended, after he suffered a serious injury in the victory of the “La Roja” team over Germany in the quarter-finals last week, with two goals to one in an exciting match.

In front of 55,000 fans in the stands of the Stuttgart Arena, the Spanish national team managed to advance to the semi-finals at the expense of the host and home team Germany, so that the team of coach Luis de la Fuente will have a date with France in the semi-finals.

In the first minutes of the match, Germany and Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos tackled Pedri’s knee hard, causing him to be injured and leave the field in favor of his teammate Dani Olmo, who proved his quality and imposed himself as a winning card when he scored a goal and made another.
