Ferguson ruled out of Ireland's Euro qualifiers

Evan Ferguson has been ruled out of the Republic of Ireland's upcoming Euro 2024 qualifiers due to injury.

The Brighton striker, 18, sustained a knee injury in the Seagulls' 3-1 win over Newcastle, during which he became only the fourth teenager to score a Premier League hat-trick.

Having been assessed by the national team's medical staff, it has been decided he will play no part in the game against France in Paris on Thursday or the Netherlands in Dublin on Sunday.

Stephen Kenny's side sit third in Group B with three points from three games, behind current leaders France and second-placed Greece.

Ferguson has earned six senior caps since making his debut against Norway in November 2022.
