Chelsea fans can relax a little after their star winger Mykhailo Mudryk was spotted training with the Ukraine national team ahead of their crucial Euro 2024 qualifier against Poland. The 22-year-old, who has been in sensational form for the Blues this season, had to be substituted in the second half of the 1-1 draw with England at Wembley on Saturday after a heavy challenge from Kyle Walker.
There were fears that Mudryk had suffered a serious injury that could rule him out for a long time, but it seems that he has escaped with just a minor bruise. He was seen smiling and joking with his teammates as they prepared for the showdown with Poland, who are level on points with Ukraine at the top of Group F.
Mudryk has been a flop for Chelsea since joining from Shakhtar Donetsk in the January window of 2023 for a reported fee of £88.5 million. He has scored 12 goals and gave 17 assists for Shakhtar Donetsk but failed to score a single goal for Chelsea FC in 20 appearances.
He has also been a key player for Ukraine, as he gave three assists in 12 matches. His pace, dribbling, and finishing have made him one of the most exciting young talents in Europe, and Chelsea will be hoping that he can continue his fine form after the international break.
Mudryk got injured in the match between England and Ukraine when Kyle Walker pressured him, which made him fall quite awkwardly, which made the team substitute him in the last phase of the match. Chelsea is already dealing with a few people who are on the injury list.
Christopher Nkunku, Wesley Fofana, Romeo Lavia, Reece James, Benoit Badiashile, Carney Chukwuemeka, Armando Broja, and Marcus Bettinelli are all dealing with some injuries.
