Carles Puyol will miss Euro 2012?

Spanish defender Carles Puyol will most probably miss out event in Poland and Ukraine because of a renewed knee injury that requires arthroscopic surgery and will be out of the game for around six weeks. It means that the coach of Spain National Team - Vicente del Bosque will have to succeed without the services of the best defender in his team. The 34-year-old featured for the full 90 minutes in Barcelona's 4-0 La Liga win over Espanyol at the weekend, but complained about knee problems after the game. He underwent a number of tests on Monday to determine the extent of the knock and as officially stated by Barcelona he will have to undergo knee surgery. The knee surgery will take place on Saturday May 12 and will be performed by doctor Ramon Cugat.
