Manchester United’s David De Gea has been injured while on international duty. The Spanish Football Association confirmed the goalkeeper suffered the injury in training yesterday, and will miss tonight’s Euro 2016 qualifier with Belarus. ‘Spain’s goalkeeper David de Gea was sidelined from training session after dislocating the little finger on his right hand’, read the statement on the national team’s website. ‘He will remain with the Spain squad while the medical services of the Spanish FA determine the extent of the injury’.

The bad news continues for United boss Louis van Gaal as Michael Carrick was also injured on international duty this week. The midfielder, who had just returned from injury to make his first start against Crystal Palace last weekend, withdrew from England training on Thursday after suffering a minor groin injury. United currently have the longest injury list in the Premier League, with 10 members of the first team injured.
