Nov 23, Kathmandu- Saudi Arabian player Yasir Al-Shahrani has been admitted to the hospital after being injured in the World Cup group stage match against Argentina on Tuesday.
Yasir collided with his own team's goalkeeper Mohamed Al-Awai near the goalpost. Arabic media reported that Yasir suffered injuries to his cheek and facial bones and suffered internal bleeding when he was hit by Mohammed's knee.
After the accident, Yasir was taken to the hospital after his condition worsened, and the prince of Saudi Arabia ordered to take him to Germany by private plane for further treatment.
After the first round of treatment, Yasir's condition has improved somewhat. Yasir, one of the main midfielders of the Arab team, is likely to miss the remaining matches of the World Cup.
The match against Argentina was won by Saudi Arabia 2-1. This is Saudi Arabia's first victory over Argentina. The Saudi government has given a public holiday for the joy of defeating Argentina.
Saudi Arabia, who are in Group C, play their next match against Poland on Saturday.
