A friendly match that ended up causing concern. The Peruvian National Team faced Panama in a match that ended in a draw (1-1) and with two injured players. Marcos López and Edison Flores left the field of play after feeling discomfort 30 minutes after the duel ended.
The ‘blanquirroja’ medical staff acted quickly, so the players underwent medical evaluations, determining the seriousness of the injuries they contracted against Panma, the same ones that will not allow them to be present in the second friendly against Jamaica.
As reported by Depor, neither of the two players suffers from serious injuries. Marcos López and Edinson Flores would have some inflammations, which can be treated with rest, they would even be fit for the duels against Colombia and Ecuador for the South American Qualifiers heading to Qatar 2022.
After appearing, in the early hours, to develop magnetic resonance imaging, the good news came with the footballers behind them, after discovering that the discomfort was not going to complicate the presence of any of them in the next official duels of the Inca team in the qualifying rounds.
In the same way, it was learned that Edison Flores is already on his way to the United States to rejoin the work of DC United, a squad that will re-evaluate him so as not to demand it, in a necessary way, in these days of preseason prior to the start of the MLS.
It should be noted that the Peruvian National Team will have to face Colombia and Ecuador for the Qualifiers heading to Qatar 2022 with the hope of being able to continue in the fight for a direct quota to the next World Cup. However, before that they will have one last preparation challenge: playing against Jamaica.
