HIRVING LOZANO

The 26-year-old suffered a serious blow to the head when colliding with Trinidad & Tobago goalkeeper Marvin Phillip in the opening fixture of the event on July 11.

Many doctors said to Lozano that he could have lost his life

Hirving ‘Chucky’ Lozano has revealed that the eye injury he suffered on Gold Cup duty with Mexico over the summer could have killed him, with the Napoli forward admitting to experiencing “a lot of fear”. The 26-year-old suffered a serious blow to the head when colliding with Trinidad & Tobago goalkeeper Marvin Phillip in the opening fixture of the event on July 11. He was taken to hospital and immediately ruled out for the remainder of the tournament, but Lozano claims there was also the threat at one stage of him losing his life. Lozano told reporters: “Many doctors said to me that I could have lost my life and you feel terrified during those times because I would leave behind two children, a wife alone and it was a tough blow and made you think of many things.

Hirving felt a lot of fear

“I think when you have children, it’s more about what will happen to them.” He added: “It was a tough injury, but thankfully it didn’t go past that. I could have become paralysed or lost an eye a bit more to the left or right. I have the scar. It was complicated. I felt a lot of fear, but my wife was there with me to support me.” Lozano is not the only Mexican to have shaken off a severe injury before returning to the international fold. Wolves striker Raul Jimenez has also been included in Gerardo Martino’s latest squad, with the 30-year-old back in contention 11 months on from suffering a fractured skull.

Lozano said of his fellow countryman, who registered his first goal since recovering from a worrying health scare during Wolves’ last Premier League outing against Southampton: “I’m personally thrilled that he has returned because his injury was a more complicated one. “It was difficult. The most important thing is health. I know he gives a lot to the national team and to the group. He is a great player and great human being.”
