Fans horrified by Rob Green’s gruesome finger before Euro 2024 semi-final

Fans have been left horrified after seeing a picture of former England goalkeeper Rob Green’s gruesome little finger.

The 12-cap international is working for the BBC for Spain’s Euro 2024 semi-final against France on Tuesday night, and posed for a picture with Spanish journalist Guillem Balague ahead of kick-off.

It didn’t take long for fans to notice that the little finger on his right hand was sticking out at a very unnatural angle, highlighting the toll that his 21-year goalkeeping career took on him.

‘Is his pinky finger ok?’ one concerned fan asked.

Another was equally taken aback by the picture as they questioned: ‘What is going on with Rob’s little finger?’

Green opened up on the horrendous finger injuries he suffered during his career in an interview last year.

Speaking to Amazon Prime Video Sport, he said: ‘One of the tales of goalkeeping, don’t be a goalkeeper, kids.

‘After a long time of playing in goal, it [his finger] got injured, dislocated and broken numerous times. It slowly started to die and then it gave up essentially.

‘It was when I was diving to my right and it started sticking in the ground as I was diving I thought, “yeah perhaps I might need to get it seen to”.

‘The glove manufacturers very kindly made me a sort of a paddle hand that had two main fingers and then one larger finger where I could tape it together and keep it relatively straight.
