The Syrian national team suffered a new blow, after its player and winger for the Lebanese Al-Ahed Club team, Mohamed Hallaq, suffered an injury, as a result of which he will miss the Asian Cup finals, scheduled to start next week in Qatar.
The Syrian Football Association said, on its account on the social networking site “Facebook”, that: “The player, Muhammad Hallaq, suffered an injury at the level of the right thigh muscle, while participating with the national team in the friendly match that brought them together last Friday with Kyrgyzstan in Dubai.”
The Syrian team doctor, Ahmed Kanjo, explained that: “Hallaq’s injury occurred in the lower third of the biceps muscle in his right thigh, which led to crushing of the soft tissues,” stressing that the player needs a treatment and rehabilitation period extending for three weeks.
Hallaq (25 years old) is the third injury to the Syrian national team’s stars, after striker Mardik Mardikian and midfielder Muhammad Othman, who were replaced by Muhammad Anz and Alaa Al-Dali.
It is noteworthy that the Syrian team tied in a friendly match with Kyrgyzstan with a score of one goal, and will conclude its preparations with a match against Malaysia tomorrow, Monday in Doha, where the “Nusour Qasioun” team will compete in the Asian Cup, in the second group alongside the teams of Australia, Uzbekistan, and India.
