Joshua King of Bournemouth has been struggling with injuries in the past two international break.

During the international break in October, the 27-year-old was struggling with an ankle injury, but recovered in time to face Slovenia and Bulgaria in the UEFA Nations League.

Last November, another injury forced him to miss the previous two matches against Slovenia and Cyprus.

Norway take on Spain on Saturday, followed by a home game against Sweden in the Euro 2020 qualifiers, and the Cherries striker has another injury scare.

According to Norway’s TV2, the former Blackburn Rovers man is struggling with a ‘bad neck’, but that should not restrict him from being fit on time to face La Roja at Mestalla.

Regarding King’s situation, Norway media manager Svein Graff said: “There is no danger for the match.”

It is claimed the Bournemouth attacker suffers from a stiff neck from time to time. The national team’s physician also confirmed that King has a sore neck, which is why he was not included in Wednesday’s training session.
