Swansea City have confirmed that Connor Roberts is to undergo surgery on the groin injury he picked up during the knockout game between Wales and Denmark at the European Championships over the weekend.
The Welsh national team ran into an inspired Danish side in the round of 16 with them losing 4-0, though they can hold their heads high for the way they got to that stage.
Indeed, they will now have full focus on World Cup qualifying but Roberts looks set to miss the next set of fixtures there, as well as the opening matches of Swansea’s Championship campaign next season.
That’s because, as per the Swans’ official channels this morning, he needs surgery on the groin injury that he suffered at the weekend will be out until late September:
Connor Roberts will undergo surgery on a groin injury suffered while on international duty.
He is expected to be out of action until the end of September after the operation.
Everyone at the Swans wishes @ConnorRobs a speedy recovery ❤️

It’s a real shame for Roberts who has become a really good player for the Swans.
You could tell as soon as he went down when running down that right-hand side over the weekend that something was up, with him unable to continue as much as he tried and wanted to.
Clearly, he’s got a few months of recovery ahead of him and he’ll miss pre-season with the Swans but once he is back he’ll surely be pushing to be straight back into the side.
