Suspension of Amadou Onana poses challenge for the Red Devils in upcoming match against Sweden

The Red Devils have definitely had their ticket for the European Championship in their pocket since Friday evening. Provided they have some luck, they can also secure a group win against Sweden on Monday. Although national coach Domenico Tedesco will be missing an important strength.

For example, Amadou Onana will have to miss the home match against Sweden. The tall midfielder has been suspended after receiving a red card in Vienna. In the first half, Onana quickly received his first yellow card after he tried to correct his loss of ball much too impetuously.

After the break, Everton FC’s strongman was sent off the field again. The midfielder arrived too late for an intervention and planted his studs on the ankles of opponent Xaver Schlager. The Spanish ref Jesus Gil Manzano had no choice but to present him with his second yellow card.

Three alternatives

As a result, the Devils will have to do without Onana on Monday. And that is a significant loss. With his impressive physical presence, the midfielder has become one of the absolute pillars in the Tedesco team.

But of course the national coach still has some alternatives in reserve in reserve. At his press chat the day before the match, he put forward three candidates to take the vacant spot. “We have three options to replace Onana. Youri Tielemans, Vermeeren or Keita. We will decide tomorrow,” he said. The newspapaer.

No giving out gifts

The match against Sweden seems to be a good opportunity to try out a few things with a view to the European Championship. But Tedesco does not plan to suddenly start experimenting. “We want to be first in the group. We are not going to hand out presents, we can test something in the coming matches, but I am not going to do anything strange. Maybe we will see two or three new boys, but that is not certain,” said the national coach.
