The Copa America is over for Ronald Araujo. The Uruguay and Barcelona centre-back has suffered a muscle injury that will prevent him from taking part in the remaining matches.
The Uruguayan federation confirmed in a brief statement the injury of the defender, who had to leave in the first half of the quarter-final against Brazil.
"In the quarter-final of the Copa America 2024 against Brazil, Ronald Araujo had to be substituted due to a physical problem. After the studies were carried out, it was confirmed that it was a muscle injury," said Uruguay.
The centre-back will thus miss the end of the Copa America, with his national team already in the semi-finals, and could also miss the start of the pre-season with Barcelona. According to 'Marca', he is expected to be out for a month.
The Barcelona club will be keeping a close eye on the physical condition of their player, the second player to suffer an injury in national team tournaments after Pedri in the European Championship with Spain.
