Clash of Cazal and Escobar
A moment of real commotion was experienced at the beginning of the second half of the match between Lanús and Aldosivi for the eleventh date of the Professional League, when at 7 minutes the local striker, Iván Cazal, and the visiting defender, Ian Escobar, collided heads . Both ended up on the grass, but the worst part was taken by the Tiburón player, who received the Paraguayan’s header on the left bow of his temple on impact and was knocked out.
Escobar was helped by his teammates and the one who was most affected by the situation was Santiago Silva. Then Ian was treated by his medical staff and the Lanús footballers themselves went to run the advertising posters and open the gate for the ambulance to enter urgently.
Referee Pablo Dóvalo stated that “the clash was quite strong. Apparently he had a seizure and did not leave in good condition. Aldosivi players are in another and we are all the same. We are waiting for information with news from the hospital. I stopped instantly and didn’t want to get close.”
Escobar was transferred to a medical center in the area for tests. In the next few minutes on the broadcast of TNT Sports reported that “Escobar regained consciousness and is fine.” While “Cazal is in the locker room and is better”, as they added in the television coverage. The maroon player suffered a cut and they put a bandage on his head. With the entry of another ambulance and with the good news that arrived, after 16 minutes the game resumed.
