De Gea, 30, took part in the session at Copenhagen’s Parken Stadium yesterday.

But he was forced out of the training drills with what is believed to be a thigh injury.

Video footage later emerged of him walking along the touchline with Spanish medical staff by his side.

He then went back into the dressing-room for treatment.

De Gea is yet to feature for his national side in the tournament.

He has played back-up to Unai Simon throughout the group stage.

Now his hopes of earning a surprise recall to Luis Enrique’s starting XI for the Croatia clash are over.

The star looks set to miss the match entirely with Brighton’s Robert Sanchez expected to replace him on the Spanish bench.

A statement from Man Utd said: “There are suggestions it could only be a minor injury for David, which would be a boost as, if Spain progress, they will face either Paul Pogba’s France or Switzerland in the quarter-finals on Friday.”

He is the second United keeper to suffer injury agony at the Euros.

Dean Henderson was forced to withdraw from the England squad due to a hip injury.

He was replaced by Sheffield United’s Aaron Ramsdale.
