Relief for Spain as Álvaro Morata’s injury not serious


MADRID (AP) — There is some relief for Spain after tests carried out over the weekend showed no serious injury for Atlético Madrid striker Álvaro Morata. Morata had to be substituted on Saturday after hurting his right ankle in the team’s 3-2 loss at Cádiz in the Spanish league. Atlético’s initial description of the injury was a “contusion,” and it later said he had an edema on the soft tissue of his ankle. Atlético says the progress of Morata’s recovery will determine when he will return to training. He was not expected to play in the Champions League match at Porto this week.
