Spain may be without Álvaro Morata in the Euro 2024 final after he was accidentally hit by a security guard on the field Tuesday night after the team's 2-1 win over France.

Shortly after Spain’s semifinals win, a fan ran out onto the field to celebrate with the team and try to take a selfie with them. As security guards rushed in to grab the fan and escort him away, a guard fell directly into Morata’s legs from behind. The guard seemed to slip.

While he didn’t fall to the ground, Morata immediately reached for his right leg and started hopping around, clearly in a lot of pain.
