Spanish giants Real Madrid have written to console Nigeria midfielder Ogenyi Onazi over his injury.
Onazi, 21, suffered a fractured ankle when he was stamped on by France midfielder Blaise Matuidi and would have taken no further part in the tournament even if Nigeria had advanced.
In a show of solidarity, Madrid have written to console the player.
“We have learned about your serious injury during the game you played against France. On behalf of our president Florentino Perez and those who work for Real Madrid, we’d like to wish you a smooth and speedy recovery,” wrote Emilio Butragueno, on behalf of Madrid.
“As a former professional footballer, I know you are going through a difficult time but I’m utterly convinced that eventually, you’ll be back to full fitness to help your team achieve its goals next season.”
Onazi has since returned to light training and is expected to join the rest of the Lazio squad for pre-season.
