Al-Hilal Saudi club announced the departure of its international striker, Saleh Al-Shehri, to Finland on Tuesday to undergo surgery after severing a tendon in his foot, which will keep him away from the stadiums for a long time and evaporate his dreams of participating in the World Cup in November in Qatar.
Al-Hilal said, via his Twitter account, that Al-Shehri “undertakes an examination on Wednesday, under the supervision of Dr. Lacey Limpainen”, and that “he will undergo surgery on Thursday after suffering a tendon rupture,” and then return to the capital, Riyadh, next Sunday.
Al-Shehri was injured during his participation with Al-Hilal in the UAE match Sharjah, in the first round of the AFC Champions League matches. After he scored the goal from an early penalty kick, he was injured in the 33rd minute of the match, which ended with Al Hilal winning the title 2-1.
The initial medical examination that Al-Shehri underwent showed that he had been away from the stadiums for many months, which was a big blow to his hopes of participating with the Saudi national team in the World Cup, where the “green” signed a strong group that includes Argentina, Poland and Mexico.
Al-Shehri (28 years), the former striker for Al-Raed club, has emerged significantly in the last World Cup qualifiers with Saudi Arabia, which will compete in the World Cup for the sixth time in its history.
The two interacted with the celebration of his colleagues in Al Hilal in his way, and the leader Salman Al-Faraj carried his shirt after the victory over the Qatari Rayyan 3-0 in the AFC Champions League, so he wrote on Twitter, “There is no void or nothingness, my brothers. Oh #crescent _ individual.
It is noteworthy that Al-Shehri is the third player to end his season with Al-Hilal due to injury, after Abdulelah Al-Maliki, who severed the cruciate ligament during his participation with the Saudi national team against Japan during the World Cup qualifiers, and the Peruvian striker Andre Carrillo, after suffering a knee sprain during his participation as well. in the World Cup qualifiers.
