The Red Devils will have to do without their ace playmaker for at least one match, due to a facial injury he suffered in his club side's Champions League final defeat to Chelsea last weekend.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez is not sure when De Bruyne will be 100 percent fit, but did say the player will likely wear a protective face mask during matches.

"De Bruyne is unlikely to be fit for that first match so whoever replaces him will have to show he's ready," said Martinez, per the Daily Mail.

"We made a decision about his mask. It will be one of the producers who made Jan Vertonghen's mask. We were very satisfied with that.

"I would say that until next week we won't know exactly where we are with Kevin. Now, allow him to relax.

"He could be available for the Euros but we don't know when at the moment. It's too early to give you an answer now, we must first get the green light from the medical side."
