As the French association announced on Wednesday night, Hernández suffered a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in France’s 4-1 opening win over Australia. FC Bayern’s record buy-in, who had been absent for several weeks this season due to a torn muscle in the adductor area, suffered the injury in the 9th minute.

He is the sixth prominent failure of world champions France. His brother Theo will represent him in the further course of the tournament, just as he did after his substitution against Australia.

“Like all the players and staff, I feel very sorry for Lucas,” said team boss Didier Deschamps. “We are losing an important element. Lucas is a warrior and I have no doubt that he will do everything to come back.”

The winners’ thoughts were with their injured colleague. “The win is for him too,” said France defender Benjamin Pavard. “He’s a great colleague, a great player. It’s very sad for him.”
