Belgium confirm Brighton’s Leandro Trossard has suffered a groin injury

Trossard’s time at Brighton

Leandro Trossard joined Brighton over the summer from Belgian outfit Genk.

Brighton are believed to have paid around £18m for Trossard’s services.

Trossard was an unused sub in the Seagulls’ first Premier League game of the season vs Watford.

However, the 24-year-old has since started Brighton’s ensuing three league outings.

Trossard has scored once in those three ties, earning his side a 1-1 draw with West Ham United.

Trossard injured

With the international break upon us, Trossard joined up with Belgium for their latest set of Euro 2020 qualifiers.

Belgium are currently top of Group I after playing four games.

They have won all four ties, scoring 11 and conceding just one in the process.

Belgium’s first game of the break is against San Marino on Friday evening.

Prior to facing off with San Marino, Belgium have confirmed that Trossard has suffered a groin injury in a training session.

Belgium go on to state that Trossard will miss both Friday’s clash with San Marino, and then their following game vs Scotland, which takes place on Monday the 9th of September.

Brighton will no doubt be hoping that the injury sustained by Trossard is nothing serious, and that he can be fit for their first game back after the break.

The Seagulls will play host to Sean Dyche’s Burnley on September 14th.
