Milan’s Theo Hernández withdraws from France national team due to a muscle injury

Milan full-back Theo Hernández has encountered a problem with the adductor, leading him to withdraw from France’s national team squad.

According to what is reported by Sky Sport Italia, Milan will run some tests on Theo Hernández’s injury to evaluate the severity of it in the coming days.

A muscle problem in the adductor means Theo Hernández will not be part of France’s upcoming UEFA Nations League games against Austria on September 22 and Denmark on September 25.

In his place, France have already summoned Lucas Digne. Another player, who sustained an injury in Milan’s 2-1 defeat to Napoli on Sunday, was Davide Calabria. The report suggests that the Italian right-back felt muscle fatigue in the flexor that forced Stefano Pioli to take him off at the half-time of the game.

Meanwhile, Hernández was on the pitch for the entirety of the match. He also pocketed the assist for Olivier Giroud’s equaliser for the Rossoneri. However, thanks to the goals from Matteo Politano and Giovanni Simeone, Napoli secured an important victory against the defending Scudetto champions.
