2020 Olympics: Dani Ceballos suffers nasty ankle injury

Spain didn’t get the ideal result in their 2020 Olympics opener against Egypt. La Rojita fielded a strong side for their clash at the Sapporo Dome.

Unai Simon, Pau Torres, Pedri and Dani Olmo starred for Spain at Euro 2020 and they all started in Japan.

But, despite having so much talent in their ranks, Spain were unable to get all three points as the game ended 0-0.

To make matters even worse for Spain, two of their starters were forced off with injuries.

Oscar Mingueza was the first to be replaced as he went off injured after 22 minutes.

Dani Ceballos also could not continue after a nasty looking injury just before half-time.

The Spanish midfielder was caught on the ankle by Taher Mohamed.

A yellow card was issued to the Egypt ace. VAR looked at the incident but decided the right decision had been made.

It is unknown how long he will be out of action for but his further participation in Spain’s Olympics campaign is in doubt.
