Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Keylor Navas will miss Costa Rica’s upcoming Concacaf Nations League semifinal showdown with Mexico due to a new shoulder injury.
Costa Rican national team manager Ronald Gonzalez recently revealed at a press conference (via AS) that the PSG star will be sidelined for a month due to this new injury.
“Keylor [Navas] is an important player, but we have to be respectful of the opinions and reports sent by PSG,” Gonzalez said. “That’s why we have a medical committee. The doctor let me know that he has a dislocation in his right shoulder, which sidelines him for up to a month.”
Navas will not only miss this upcoming encounter against Mexico, but this injury is expected to also keep him out of the international friendly fixture against the United States coming next week.
More so, Navas could also go on to miss Costa Rica’s 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup group stage matches. Costa Rica will kick off its Gold Cup run in mid-July. Thus, Navas would need to soon make a full recovery from his shoulder injury and avoid any setbacks in order to feature with his side in this tournament.
The PSG goalkeeper recently finished off the Ligue 1 campaign with 29 appearances in league play.
