Paris 2024 Olympic Games: Lucas Chevalier, injured with Lille against Nantes in Ligue 1, could miss the Games

Its participation in the Paris 2024 Olympic Games is now compromised. This Sunday in Ligue 1, Lucas Chevalier was injured during Lille’s victory on the Nantes pitch (1-2). The Northerners goalkeeper, member of the French youth team coached by Thierry Henry, was injured in one knee.

It was during an intervention at the very end of the game that Lucas Chevalier was injured against Nantes. The 22-year-old Frenchman received an aerial ball, but when his supports touched the ground again, he appeared to twist his knee. He initially insisted to doctors to continue the match, before finally giving up and leaving the field.

A return in time for the Olympics?

Lille, despite the loss of their goalkeeper, can rejoice after this victory on the 33rd day. This success allows them to move ahead of Brest in the ranking, author of a draw against Reims on Friday (1-1), and therefore to take third place. A valuable position, since it ensures direct qualification for the Champions League next season, without going through the preliminary round.

For his part, Lucas Chevalier is therefore uncertain for the last day of Ligue 1, next Sunday against Nice. But, above all, the goalkeeper could miss the Paris Olympic Games, in less than three months. The first match of the France team is scheduled for Wednesday July 24, at 9 p.m. at the Vélodrome stadium. Thierry Henry’s team will face the United States.
