Lucas Hernandez will miss France’s Euro 2024 campaign after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament during Paris Saint-Germain’s 1-0 Champions League defeat to Borussia Dortmund.

Dortmund will take a slender lead to the Parc des Princes for next week’s semi-final second leg after Niclas Fullkrug’s strike powered them past PSG in Wednesday’s first leg in Germany.

Hernandez sustained a knee injury while chasing after Fullkrug in the build-up to the goal and was substituted after a brief attempt to play on.

On Thursday, PSG announced an MRI scan had revealed an ACL tear in his left knee, which will require surgery in the coming days.

Hernandez, who has 37 senior international caps, will now miss Euro 2024, with France set to open their Group D campaign against Austria in Dusseldorf on June 17.

Didier Deschamps’ side then face the Netherlands in Leipzig four days later, before taking on Poland in Dortmund on June 25.

Hernandez was part of France’s squad for the 2022 World Cup but sustained another ligament injury during Les Bleus’ opening match against Australia, missing the rest of the tournament and not returning to club football until the start of 2023-24.
