Yesterday afternoon, the star of our national team, Yasser Al-Shahrani, underwent a successful operation on the pancreas at the National Guard Hospital in Riyadh.
Yasser arrived at noon yesterday, Wednesday, on a medical evacuation plane to Riyadh and was immediately admitted to the National Guard Hospital for surgery.
Al-Shahrani suffered serious head, chest and abdominal injuries after a violent collision with his colleague Mohammed Al Owais against Argentina on Tuesday, and the player was taken directly to Hamad Medical Hospital in Doha to receive the necessary treatment.
Yesterday, the Saudi Arabia national team scored a historic victory over their rival from Argentina (2:1) at the beginning of the path of the two teams in the group stage of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Yasser Al-Shahrani reassured fans yesterday with a video clip from the hospital he was taken to in Doha, asking everyone to pray for him.
Al-Shahrani suffered a serious injury after colliding with fellow goalkeeper Mohammed Al-Owais following a joint ball, causing the left-back to fall to the ground soaked in blood, which scared fans.
Al-Shahrani said in a video clip from the hospital, “God willing, my business is done and pray for me and congratulations to the Saudi team for the victory.”
