Carvajal played the full 90 minutes of Spain's 1-0 friendly defeat to France on Thursday.

A team statement released on Monday read: "Dani Carvajal is sidelined from the national team due to a injury in his left thigh.

"Injury was detected with an MRI scan carried out on Monday 8th September in Valencia all the tests carried out by the medical staff will be sent to Real Madrid."
