After the double whammy of missing a penalty and pulling his hamstring in the process, Singapore national team striker Khairul Amri will now face three to four weeks without football.
This was confirmed by national team physiotherapist Nurhafizah Sujad, as the player faces a tough battle to recover in time for next month’s crucial World Cup qualifiers against Japan (Nov 12) and Syria (Nov 17).
And the 30-year-old sharpshooter is definitely out of the LionsXII’s final two Malaysia Cup group games against Johor Darul Takzim II on Saturday and Terengganu on Oct 27.
Nurhafizah said yesterday: “Amri visited the specialist today and is estimated to be out for a period of three to four weeks.
“He suffered a strain in one of his hamstring muscles but there was no obvious tear.
“He will now undergo intensive physiotherapy with active rehabilitation. After the second scan, he will hopefully be able to progress to straight-line jogging in about two weeks, followed by on-field rehab if all goes well.”
