Premier League - Leicester City v Sheffield United

(Reuters) - Scotland striker Oli McBurnie said he is "devastated" to miss the European Championship this summer after suffering a foot fracture.

The Sheffield United forward has been out of action since picking up the injury during a Premier League match against Arsenal on April 11.

"I'm devastated that I suffered a fractured metatarsal which ruled me out for the rest of the season and has unfortunately ruled me out for the Euros," the 24-year-old tweeted

"Not to be able to go to that tournament with the boys is heartbreaking for me."

Coach Steve Clarke will announce his squad for the tournament on Wednesday, with Scotland set to play at their first European Championship finals since 1996.

Clarke also lost midfielder Kenny McLean last week after he picked up a knee injury playing for Norwich City.

Scotland, who are in Group D, begin their Euro campaign against Czech Republic on June 14 at Hampden Park in Glasgow.
