Hopefully Stuart Holden comes away from this with no serious damage to his knee and is able to play in the United States friendly versus Argentina this next week.
However, it doesn’t look good right now, as he’s been sent to the hospital for further evaluation. See the tackle in the video below. Evans received a straight red card for the tackle.
Holden had this to say on his Twitter account:
“Thanks for all the messages of support, will keep everyone updated when I find out the extent of injury.”
Holden is having a terrific season for Bolton after missing out on the World Cup due to a Nigel de Jong tackle that broke his leg in a friendly match prior to the Cup. So, it would be hard luck to see him go down again when he’s playing so well and has so much to look forward to.
The gash in his knee makes it look ugly but as long as there’s no ligament damage then perhaps Holden could recover fairly quickly. Fingers crossed.
Manchester United went on to win the match despite playing a man down, as Dimitar Berbatov scored with three remaining.
