After making a stunning start to UEFA Euro 2024 with a match-winning performance for England against Serbia, Real Madrid rising star Jude Bellingham starts again for the Three Lions today against Denmark.

England take on the Danish national team at the Deutsche Bank Park in Frankfurt in an hour and all eyes will again be on Bellingham after his brilliant start to the Euros.

The 20-year-old Real Madrid ace will be partnered with Arsenal ace Declan Rice and Liverpool star Trent Alexander-Arnold, who continues to be deployed as a makeshift midfielder, in the centre of the park.

Bellingham will face off against Barcelona defender Andreas Christensen, who starts at the heart of the Denmark defence.

A victory today would guarantee Bellingham & co. a progression through Group C and into the Round of 16 stage. A strong run for England in the tournament could further Bellingham’s chances of winning the Ballon d’Or.

Real Madrid are in active negotiations with LOSC Lille for the transfer of Leny Yoro. After weeks of impasse, the club appear to have made some ground in the race to sign the Frenchman.

However, should the Yoro deal fall through in the coming weeks, Real Madrid have identified Lazio’s Mario Gila as the ideal alternative.

Formerly of RM Castilla, Gila currently plies his trade for Lazio and has emerged as a key defensive lynchpin for the Italian outfit, impressing onlookers with his technique and discipline.

However, in a major development, it appears Mario Gila has picked up a fresh injury during training, reports Diario AS.

In the pre-season camp at Auronzo di Cadore, Gila appears to have fractured his left foot and could be out for several weeks.

Lazio confirmed the defender’s injury, stating, “Mario Gila underwent clinical and instrumental examinations which revealed a fracture of the phalanx of the big toe of his left foot, suffered during training.”

Gila has started taking the appropriate treatment and the extent of his injury will be known soon. However, as things stand, the defender could be out for at least the next few weeks.

What does this mean for Real Madrid?

Mario Gila’s fresh injury setback is sure to dwindle any hopes of a potential return to Real Madrid this summer.

In any case, Gila’s chances of returning to Santiago Bernabeu were slim given that Real Madrid have finally made some ground in the deal to sign top defensive target Leny Yoro.

Los Blancos, though, would have liked having someone like Gila available as an alternative, especially with LOSC Lille still demanding a fortune for the Frenchman.

Unfortunately, that might not be an option anymore, no thanks to Gila’s injury. The club, though, will keep a close eye on the Spaniard’s injury situation, knowing he could return to fitness before the end of the summer break.
