CHELSEA defender Toni Rudiger is starting in the Euro 2020 clash between France and Germany.

But he will once again be sporting a different look, with the German defender wearing a mask.


Why is Antonio Rudiger wearing a mask?

Rudiger, 28, suffered a facial injury in Chelsea's 1-1 first leg draw with Real Madrid.

And he was seen wearing a mask in the second leg, which the Blues won 2-0 to reach the Champions League final.

The German colossus also donned it for the final itself, where he ran into Kevin De Bruyne in a sickening collision.

And Rudiger will once again have the mask on as Germany face France in Munich – and reckons his side will have to be 'a little dirty' if they want to win.

He revealed: "[The mask is] still there for protection.

"I’ll have to see what the Chelsea doctors say when I get back to London.

"We have to be a little dirty, not always be nice or try to play nice football.

"Against players like them, you have to throw down a marker."
