According to Football Scotland, Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson has withdrawn from the first training session with Scotland ahead of Euro 2024 in Germany.

There are several Liverpool players out on international duty this summer and many will be competing in Euro 2024 which kicks off in Germany on Friday evening.

The first clash of the competition is between host nation Germany and Scotland at the Allianz Arena, where Andy Robertson was expected to lead out his nation as captain.

The Liverpool star has suffered a season set-backs with a long-term shoulder injury picked up on international duty last year which saw him miss out on a large chunk of Jurgen Klopp’s last campaign at Anfield.

Now it is looking like recent history is repeating itself as Football Scotland are now reporting that the Scotsman had to leave Scotland’s first training session in Germany prematurely this morning after suffering another injury concern.

As per the report, in an open training session the Scotland skipper was seen hitting the ground which followed a number of physios rallying around the Liverpool fullback.

Robertson then left the training pitch to be assessed in the gym area, but was able to walk upon his exit from the session, so there will be hope that it is merely a precaution ahead of the first group stage game later this week.

Our thoughts on Robertson’s injury scare…

There is no doubt that Scotland supporters will be concerned about the potential injury scare to Robertson, as the talented left-back has been integral to their positive performances for many years now.

Given the fact that he was able to walk away from the incident to be further assessed elsewhere will be a massive boost and at worst, he will have four days now to recover depending on the severity of the issue.

From a Liverpool perspective, Arne Slot will be desperately hoping that the injury is not serious and extending into his pre-season plans back on Merseyside as the new manager will want time with his senior players to assess what is needed ahead of next season.

With that being said, there will now be an anxious wait to see the extent of Robertson’s injury scare for Scotland supporters and there will be high hopes he will be able to participate in Munich on Friday.
