Inter Milan goalkeeper Yann Sommer has suffered an ankle injury during a friendly match with Switzerland against Denmark.

The 35-year-old had to come off the pitch during the first half of the pre-EURO 2024 match with his national team.

Sommer started for Switzerland in this evening’s friendly match against Denmark.

The Swiss are gearing up for the upcoming Euros this summer.

Sommer will be the first-choice starter at that tournament, presuming he is fit.

The 35-year-old has been the starter for Switzerland for the better part of a decade. This includes at the most recent Euros, when the keeper played a big role in his team eliminating France on penalties.

And so Sommer was in the starting eleven for this evening’s friendly against Denmark.

However, the Inter goalkeeper will not be able to see out the match.

Inter Keeper Yann Sommer Forced Off With Ankle Injury In Denmark Vs Switzerland Friendly

The problem for Sommer concerned the veteran goalkeeper’s right ankle.

The 35-year-old moved in a way that twisted the ankle awkwardly.

Sommer went down in some pain. And the Swiss medical staff went over to examine the issue and try to treat it.

Sommer did try to play on following the injury.

But then it became clear that the Inter keeper would not be able to continue, so he came off the pitch as a substitute. Lorient keeper Yvon Mvogo took his place in the 37th minute.

Now it will remain to be seen whether Sommer can make a quick return, or if he will miss any matches for Inter.

The Nerazzurri return to Serie A action against Empoli after the international break.

Whilst Inter have a fourteen-point gap at the top of the Serie A table, they will still be keen to avoid any slowdown in form to try and clinch the title as soon as possible.
