Midway through the international break, Nottingham Forest is preparing for its return to action against Burnley.
When the Premier League resumes after a two-week break, Steve Cooper’s team will be trying to maintain their strong start to the season.

NextMonday night at City Ground, the Reds will play host to the recently promoted Clarets.

Following a busy end to the transfer window for Forest, Cooper will need to make some difficult selections for that match. And he will be hopeful that the break has allowed some players who are recovering from injuries the chance to rest.

However, it appears that some team members sustained injuries while serving their respective nations on duty. We examine the current state of affairs.

Injury to Anthony Elanga: unknown.

What is known: Prior to the European qualifying match against Latvia, word came from the Sweden camp on Sunday that the winger had withdrawn from international duty. Elanga won’t be available for the upcoming match because he was not used as a substitute in his nation’s 5-0 victory over Estonia on Saturday.

The men’s national team of Sweden released the following statement: “Striker Anthony Elanga has left the squad due to a minor injury. As a result, he missed Sunday’s workout. The nature of the injury has not been determined.


Danilo may have a hamstring injury.

What is known: The Brazilian was scheduled to play against Burnley in the Carabao Cup, but a last-minute substitution was made because of a hamstring injury. He received a scan before the match against Chelsea and was questionable to travel.

The midfielder was given the go-ahead to start the game, but he only played for about 45 minutes. He tripped up before the end of the first half and left the field after getting medical attention there. He ultimately left the Brazil Under-23 team.

Wayne Hennessey

Injury: Unknown.

What we know: The shot-stopper required an operation after suffering a knee injury while on international duty with Wales in the summer. He had been nearing fitness – being involved in the goalkeepers’ warm-up at Chelsea despite not being in the match squad.

He went on to link up with Wales and was on the bench for their friendly with South Korea last week. However, it emerged over the weekend that he had left the squad due to an “unspecified” injury. It means he will miss tonight’s Euro 2024 qualifier with Latvia.
