De Bruyne broke that eye socket and his nose more than a week ago in the lost Champions League final against Chelsea (0-1).

The Belgian collided with the German defender Antonio Rüdiger in Porto after an hour of play.

The City captain left the field groggy.

The 29-year-old Belgian had surgery on Saturday and hopes to be able to play without a mask at the European Championships.

The Belgian Football Association distributed a photo of De Bruyne's arrival at the players' hotel in Tubize.

He was wearing a mask and sunglasses, so the condition of the injuries to his face could not be seen.

Look who's here!
