A new headache for Reinaldo Rueda. Although until yesterday the physical condition of David Ospina after being injured from Naples vs. Fiorentina, today it was learned from Italy that the goalkeeper will need at least two weeks of recovery. With this, it would be practically ruled out for the matches of the Colombia selection by Qualifying for Qatar 2022.
The Colombian was part of the game in the elimination of the Neapolitans against the ‘Viola’ team in the round of 16 of the Italian Cup, however, Luciano Spalletti decided to remove him at halftime after confirming to the Medical Department that he was suffering from some discomfort in the left calf after a blow sustained during the engagement.
The first official statement from Napoli was that the man from Antioquia “he accused a resentment in the left calf”, reserving complete information on the estimated recovery time. After the respective evaluations, it was confirmed that Ospina will be absent for at least fifteen days, according to the Italian press.
“David Ospina will be absent for at least two weeks and is also at risk of being called up to his side, which will take part in World Cup qualifiers at the end of the month. With Bologna and Salernitana it will surely be the turn of Alex Meret, who returned just 48 hours ago after the break due to coronavirus”, reported the newspaper ‘Il Mattino’.
This is the first injury suffered by the Nice exporter this season, in which he has made a total of 21 appearances between Serie A, Europa League and Italian Cup. In these commitments he has received 17 goals.
Waiting for an official confirmation from the celestial cast, it is most likely that Reinaldo Rueda dispenses with Ospina for the Qualifying matches against the Peruvian National Team, in Barranquilla (January 28), and against the ‘Albiceleste, in Córdoba (February 1st).
