STOCKHOLM (Reuters) – Goalkeeper David De Gea left the field injured on the hour mark of Spain’s Euro 2020 qualifier with Sweden on Tuesday, shortly after the home side’s opening goal.

De Gea had been superb until Marcus Berg nodded home the opener from close range in the 51st minute. Shortly afterwards the 28-year-old keeper sat down on the pitch before being replaced by Kepa.

De Gea’s club side Manchester United are set to meet leaders Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.
