El zaguero saudí Yasser Alshahrani fue trasladado en avión a su país el miércoles para ser tratado de una lesión en el rostro tras un aparatoso choque con un compañero en la victoria sobre Argentina en el Mundial.

Alshahrani fue llevado desde Doha al Hospital de la Guardia Nacional en Riad, explicó la federación saudí.

El defensor de 30 años se lesionó en el tiempo de descuento de la segunda mitad cuando ayudaba a preservar la ventaja de 2-1 de los saudíes sobre uno de los favoritos del torneo.

Alshahrani retrocedía para defender un centro en el área saudí cuando chocó contra el arquero Mohammed Alowais, quien golpeó a Alshahrani en la cara con una rodilla. La cabeza del defensa también golpeó el césped con fuerza.

La selección saudí publicó un video el martes en la noche que mostraba al jugador, hablando desde la cama de un hospital, asegurando a los aficionados que se encontraba bien.

El próximo partido de Arabia Saudí en el Grupo C será el sábado contra Polonia.
