Wales attacker Tom Lawrence has confirmed via Twitter that he is out of Euro 2016 through injury.

Lawrence expressed how disappointed he was to miss out on his first major tournament. The Leicester City owned 22-year-old vowed to bounce back.



Lawrence has been out on loan this season at Blackburn Rovers and Cardiff City, missing out on his club's Premier League title success. He made a total of 35 appearances in the Championship for the two clubs.

The attacking midfielder has won four caps for Wales, featuring in their qualifying campaign, having previously made eight appearances at under-21 level.

Wales are in England's group at Euro 2016, along with Slovakia and Russia.

Lawrence made his professional debut for Manchester United, later substituted for Ryan Giggs, in his first match as player-manager in 2014, but was sold months later when Louis van Gaal took over.
