Spain have made an absolute dream start to their UEFA Euro 2024 campaign in Germany as they have taken a 3-0 lead over Croatia in their first Group B game.

Alvaro Morata and Fabian Ruiz handed La Roja the early advantage before Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal made it 3-0 for his team on the cusp of half-time.

The 32-year-old right-back, who scored a crucial goal for Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final earlier this month, slid in unmarked to get on the end of a cross from Barcelona prodigy Lamine Yamal before finding the back of the net with precision.

It is Carvajal’s first-ever goal for the Spanish national team, coming on his first game for La Roja in the European Championships.

Carvajal has played in each of the last two World Cups for Spain, but missed the previous two Euros through injury. And the Real Madrid veteran is off to a memorable start in the competition.

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.
