Montella didn’t disclose exactly what was wrong with Guler.

Guler, a 19-year-old attacking midfielder who plays for Real Madrid, scored a brilliant long-range goal in the 3-1 win over Georgia on Tuesday to become the youngest debut scorer at a European Championship. He came off in the 79th minute.
