Newcastle winger Jonas Gutierrez suffered a shoulder injury during Argentina’s 1-1 with Peru yesterday.
Jonas Gutierrez – dislocated shoulder?
Gutierrez collided with Peru’s Paolo De La Haza after just 16inutes in the South American World Cup qualifier in Lima, and was immediately replaced by Sebastian Battaglia.
Initial reports are that Jonas has suffered a suffered a dislocated shoulder, but after the game the Football Association press officer Andres Ventura played down the injury and said:
“Jonas suffered a strong trauma to his right shoulder and he will need more medical examinations.”
In other words, he’s not sure what exactly the injury is. Peru equalized in injury time to get a 1-1 draw and extend Argentina’s winless streak in the South American World Cup qualifiers to five games, although they are still placed 3rd in the table.
This is bad news for Newcastle fans and it now looks certain that Jonas will miss the home game against Hull City at St. James’ Park on Saturday.
We have no other news of any of our other players being injured yesterday.
