“I don’t feel anything on the left side, like after a visit to the dentist,” De Bruyne told ESPN. “My nerve is very badly affected, which could take six months. It’s not a comfortable feeling, but the most important thing is that I can play.
“The last two months have been up and down for me with minor injuries. After that fracture in the nose and eye socket, it was a bit of a wait.
“But luckily I came back in the fastest way. There was very good intensity for half an hour, [against Denmark] then I felt it. But I’m glad I was able to play.”
