France’s Rami cleared of serious neck injury
France defender Adil Rami has only a minor neck injury after
landing heavily on his shoulder during the scoreless draw with
Croatia in a friendly.
The Lille player was injured in stoppage time on Tuesday at the
Stade de France while trying to perform a scissor kick. He was
carried off the pitch on a stretcher and underwent scans at La
Pitie Salpetriere hospital.
The French football federation said Wednesday in a statement
that the scans ”didn’t reveal any sign of seriousness.”
Lille says Rami will return to the club later Wednesday and will
be monitored by medical staff.
Leader Lille hosts Caen in the French league on Saturday.
