“FIFA virus” guides Real Madrid before the Manchester City summit

Kyle Walker, the Manchester City player, suffered an unusual injury during his participation with the England national team in the friendly match with Brazil at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Walker felt muscle pain minutes after the start of the England-Brazil match, and left the field injured, without anyone yet knowing what this injury was and the expected length of his absence.

Perhaps Real Madrid is the happiest with this news, as if the injury is stronger than expected, the experienced right-back could miss the Royal Club’s confrontation with his team, City, in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Real Madrid is scheduled to meet City on April 9 at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, and initial indications are that Walker may not succeed in this match, but he will return in the second leg.

Throughout his career, the 33-year-old has only been injured twice, which makes Real Madrid lucky if the usual “FIFA virus” causes an unexpected injury to the star of Pep Guardiola’s squad.

According to England coach Gareth Southgate, Walker will undergo tests within the next few hours that will reveal the nature of the injury and the duration of his absence, given that the player himself failed to evaluate the matter due to the rarity of his exposure to injuries.
