Saudi Arabia’s left-back requires facial surgery following win against Argentina



Saudi Arabia World Cup 2022

Saudi left-back Yasser Al Shahrani will undergo facial surgery in Riyadh after his goalkeeper accidentally kneed him in the face during the historic 2-1 2022 World Cup win over Argentina on Tuesday.

During second-half stoppage time at Lusail Stadium, Saudi goalkeeper Mohammed Al Owais came off his line to clear a ball entering his box. Al Shahrani and an Argentine striker were also leaning on the ball which meant Al Owais had to jump to clear the danger.
