PSV Eindhoven winger Hirving Lozano has been released from the hospital following a head injury picked up in the victory over Groningen.
Lozano scored both of PSV’s goals inside the first 20 minutes of an eventual 2-1 victory, but just before the end of the opening 45 minutes he was involved in a clash of heads with Tim Handwerker of Groningen and required a substitution.
PSV manager Mark Van Bommel refused to reveal details of Lozano’s injury after the match, but simply stated that he had taken a “hard hit.”
Replays revealed Handwerker looked to head the ball, but missed and actively hit Lozano at the back of the head with his own forehead.
The news is good for the Dutch club, who will want the Mexico international on the pitch as soon as possible.
PSV’s released a statement saying that Lozano injury is classified as “day-to-day.” The statement said, “His workload will be examined from day to day on the basis of the applicable FIFA protocols.”
The former Pachuca winger has 13 goals in 19 league appearances after Saturday’s brace, and he has another four goals in the UEFA Champions League.
The 23-year-old was very impressive at the World Cup in Russia last summer, scoring the only goal in the win over Germany and assisting one in the South Korea victory.
