Gvardiol suffers a broken nose – but the World Cup is not in danger
Josko Gvardiol broke his nose in Leipzig’s 3-1 win over SC Freiburg. The World Cup is therefore not in danger for him.
The 3-1 victory over SC Freiburg did not come without costs for RB Leipzig: Josko Gvardiol had to be treated for a long time after a collision before he had to leave the field. Apparently he has one broken nose drawn.
The squad for the national team was announced on Wednesday afternoon of Croatia. Josko Gvardiol must have been delighted to see he was nominated to represent his country at the World Cup. The RB defender should be in the defense of the reigning vice world champion.
The second highlight for him followed in the evening: With Leipzig he was able to play in strong form Sc freiburg defeated 3:1 in the home stadium. Two great aspects of a day that he will probably remember for a little longer.
Not least because his nose will remind him of this for some time to come. After all, the 20-year-old defender had to be treated for a long time after a collision with team-mate Willi Orban.
It quickly became clear: the nose was affected. “I heard that he has a broken nose. The eye is swollen. He looks like a boxer after the twelfth round against a difficult opponent,” explained Marco Rose after the game (via picture). Gvardiol was initially taken to the hospital for further investigations.
If the diagnosis of the broken nose stays the same, there would be no danger to him taking part in the World Cup. If necessary and if possible, he could also play with a special mask.
The exact assessment of his injury is expected on Thursday.
