Anthony Elanga of Nottingham Forest has departed the Sweden training camp early due to a minor injury.
In Sweden’s 5-0 demolition of Estonia in Tallinn on Saturday, Dejan Kulusevski and Emil Forsberg were favored over Elanga, who was not deployed as a replacement.
Has since been released from the squad early, meaning he will miss Sweden’s Euro 2024 qualifying match against Austria on Tuesday and will instead travel back to the UK to undergo more evaluation.
Anthony Elanga has departed the men’s national team roster owing to a minor injury, according to a statement from the Swedish FA. As a result, he missed Sunday’s workout.
Taiwo Awoniyi’s goal against Arsenal was assisted by the Swede on his debut, but Forest still lost by a slim margin.
In West London, it was Awoniyi who set up Elanga to score instead of the other way around, but this time, Forest would go on to win all three points.
Danilo’s hamstring injury in the first half forced Elanga into the Chelsea game.
However, since that both players are questionable, another of Forest’s recent additions might have to replace Awoniyi in the lineup.
But now that both players are questionable, Forest may need to insert another newcomer to play behind Awoniyi.
The fitness of Callum Hudson-Odoi, who hasn’t played since May, and Divock Origi, who hasn’t played in any capacity since then, is still in doubt due to their lack of playing time.
Ryan Yates might be utilized in a more advanced role right away once more, like he was in the first half before to Danilo’s injury, if Brennan Johnson is sold.
Monday night at the City Ground, Forest plays Burnley in their first game following the international break.
