Home   /   France’s Lucas Hernandez ruled out of 2022 FIFA World Cup with ruptured ACL

Lucas Hernandez is the latest Frenchman to drop out of the 2022 FIFA World Cup after rupturing his Anterior Cruciate Ligament in their 4-1 win against Australia. 

The Bayern Munich defender went down in the build-up to the first goal of the contest scored by Australia and had to be replaced by his brother Theo Hernandez. 

A subsequent scan has confirmed a ruptured ACL in his right knee, ruling him out from football for the foreseeable future. 

Following the match, French manager Didier Deschamps said: 

“Like the whole group, players and staff, I am extremely sad for Lucas. We lose an important element. Lucas is a warrior and I have no doubt that he will do everything to return to the forefront.” 

France’s next match in the tournament is against Demark, a side that beat them twice in the most recent edition of the UEFA Nations League.
