Manchester City could be without Ferran Torres for a period of time after confirming he has fractured his foot on international duty with Spain.
The forward scored twice in the semi-final win over Italy, before he was withdrawn shortly after half-time with an injury. He was deemed fit enough to start in the final with France, which his side lost 2-1.
But it has now been confirmed that the issue is more significant, with Pep Guardiola confirming on Friday that he will be out for up to three months.

In a statement, City said: "Ferran Torres has suffered an injury to his right foot while on international duty.
"The City forward, who scored twice in Spain's Nations League semi-final victory over Italy and also started the showpiece final against France, has picked up a small fracture.
"He has since returned to Manchester for tests and will continue to be monitored."
Manchester City will be without Torres for Saturday’s Premier League game with Burnley, while Pep Guardiola's side are back in Champions League action against Club Brugge on Tuesday 19 October.
Guardiola will also be without Ederson and Gabriel Jesus for the visit of Sean Dyche's side, with the pair unavailable after playing for Brazil against Uruguay on Thursday night.
