Could this West Brom star miss Euro 2016 after suffering ligament damage?

West Brom

Chris Brunt was stretchered off against Crystal Palace on Saturday with a knee injury.

Not only have West Bromwich Albion been dealt a blow with a serious-looking knee injury to Chris Brunt, but there are now fears that the Northern Irish international could miss Euro 2016, according to the Birmingham Mail.

The 31-year-old fell awkwardly shortly before half time in the clash against Crystal Palace on Saturday and had to be taken from the field on a stretcher.

It is thought that the midfielder has undergone a scan on his injured knee, but the extent of the problem is not yet known to the player or the club.

However. the Birmingham Mail claims that there are concerns that Brunt could miss the rest of the season for Tony Pulis' side, as well as serious doubts over his fitness for the European Championships in France this summer.

The news is the latest blow for Brunt, who has endured a tough few weeks.

The long-serving Albion man was struck by a coin thrown from his own fans at the end of the FA Cup defeat to Reading at the Madejski Stadium earlier in February.

The incident was widely condemned, and fans and player alike rallied behind Brunt to offer their support, with volunteers raising money around the Hawthorns before Saturday's match for a charity of the player's choice.

Albion supporters also raised hundreds of pounds themselves to pay for a banner inside the stadium which displayed a picture of Brunt and the words "Brunty, one of us".

However, what should have been an emotional day for the right reasons for the club's vice-captain ended on a sour note with the potentially-serious knee injury coming shortly before half time after an awkward fall.

His participation in what would be his first ever major international tournament now looks in serious jeopardy.
