World Cup 2014 – Group C Update: Colombia Striker Will Miss Rest of Group Stage

17 Jun


Yet another injury to report.

Colombia’s Football Federation announced today that striker, Carlos Bacca, will miss the rest of the group stage. The official statement read, “Following the tests done by Colombia’s medical team, led by Doctor Carlos Ulloa, it has been determined that player Carlos Bacca has suffered a first degree muscle strain and will require a period of treatment from seven to 10 days.”

Bacca obtained the strain during training. Though he did not feature in Saturday’s win over Greece, he will likely still be considered a significant loss. In 35 Primera Liga appearances for Sevilla, Bacca scored 14 goals.

Get well soon Carlos!

-Dr. P
