Nick Pope set for knee surgery: What it means for Burnley star’s Euro 2020 chances

Nick Pope set for knee surgery: What it means for Burnley star’s Euro 2020 chances

 

England have this evening been dealt a blow, after confirmation was forthcoming that Burnley star Nick Pope is set to go under the knife.

Pope misses out

Sean Dyche’s men are of course set to return to action shortly.

The Clarets will make the trip to Bramall Lane, as part of the final round of Premier League fixtures.

The clash, in truth is of little importance to Burnley, who, despite sitting 17th in the English top-flight, have long confirmed their top-flight status for another season.

And, somewhat out of the blue, the Burnley boss revealed that Pope has been forced onto the treatment table, ahead of an imminent medical procedure on his knee:

Not only that, but, as has since been confirmed by a host of reliable sources, Pope’s injury means that the shot-stopper will also be unavailable for selection to Gareth Southgate for this summer’s European Championships.

Ben Mee, meanwhile, has been ruled out this evening due to a groin problem.
