PSV Eindhoven have confirmed that striker Hirving Lozano has been released from hospital after suffering a head injury in Saturday’s Eredivisie win against Groningen.The 23-year-old was involved in a clash of heads with Tim Handwerker and was unable to finish the game.There were concerns after the match as the extent of the problem with Mark van Bommel himself stating ‘it does not look good’. Therefore Sunday’s news came as a welcomed relief for the club’s fans.

An official statement from PSV said: “Hirving Lozano has left the St. Anna Hospital and is now at home.”His workload will be examined from day-to-day on the basis of the applicable FIFA protocols.”El Chucky = home 🙂Lozanodischarged from the hospital#PSVGROhttps://t.co/7Q1bQ5K3U9— PSV (@PSV) January 27, 2019That could mean the Mexican is ruled out for several weeks and might miss upcoming games against Fortuna Sittard, Utrecht and Hereenveen.Despite being withdrawn just before half-time in the 2-1 win against Groningen, Lozano did score the decisive goals in the match, by netting a first-half brace.The result helped increase their gap over second-place Ajax, who now trail PSV by five points following Sunday’s 6-2 defeat to Feyenoord.Lozano is enjoying a superb season for the reigning Dutch champions and has scored 13 times in 19 league games.His tally this campaign is just short of his overall goal haul from the 2017/18 season, when he bagged 17 Eredivisie goals.He has also enjoyed success in the Champions League this campaign and was on target and against Tottenham and Inter.Unsurprisingly his impressive showings have seen him be linked with some of Europe’s top clubs. However, this injury looks to have put to bed any hope of him leaving this month.He hasn’t exactly squashed any rumours and in November claimed: “I hope that God, some day, gives me a shot at playing in the Premier League.”“I think the Premier League is great. I think that it would be fabulous to play with any of the clubs, but I would love to play for one of the big clubs,” he added.Lozano was also one of Mexico’s top performers at the World Cup, not least when he netted the winner in his country’s opening game against the reigning world champions Germany.

The lanky pacer was happy with getting paid Rs 200 at tennis ball tournaments in his hometown in Haryana. However, his raw pace impressed a section of the cricket fraternity in Delhi and he was soon bowling at the nets for the state’s Ranji Trophy team.Thanks to Gautam Gambhir, Navdeep Saini consistently played with the leather ball and also was inducted in Delhi’s Ranji Trophy team.Saini’s raise has been phenomenal ever since. The young pacer, who can crank up 150 kph at will, made his international debut on Saturday in the 1st T20I against the West Indies in Florida.Saini was unstopabble on debut as the 26-year-old lanky pacer troubled the West Indies batsmen with is pace and aggression. He was hit for a huge six in the very second ball of his international career but Saini did not get bogged down. Instead, he came back harder to pick up two wickets in his very first over.From a nervous start, Saini went to being on a hat-trick after removing Nicholas Pooran and Shimron Hetmyer in successive deliveries in his 1st over. He completed his spell with 3 wickets and also became only the 2nd bowler to bowl a maiden in the 20th over of a T20I. Saini finished with the big scalp of Kieron Pollard, who top-scored for West Indies on Saturday.Conceding he was quite nervous before bowling the first over on Saturday, Saini said playing for India was a dream-come-true moment for him.advertisement”I was very happy, it was my debut. In the morning when I got the cap, I was not able to believe that this was the day I had been waiting for. It was a dream come true for me,” Saini told bcci.tv.Saini added: “When I got the first wicket (of Nicholas Pooran), the pressure of playing a debut match was released. I was a bit low on confidence before that but that wicket changed it. When I took the second wicket, then it all felt normal.The hat-trick ball I was thinking about how I had watched others take hat-tricks and how they took them.”MUST WATCH: Of dream debut and tattoos, Navdeep unplugged with @BhuviOfficialHe picked up the Man of the Match prize in his maiden game for #TeamIndia & the speedster recaps the memorable day. – by @28anandFull video here https://t.co/uRONW22wv9 pic.twitter.com/w7FrUzXuRdBCCI (@BCCI) August 4, 2019Saini on Pollard dismissalNavdeep Saini also revealed how Virat Kohli’s decision to go for the review in the final over helped him add Kieron Pollard to his victims list on debut.Saini had trapped Pollard in front with a slower fulltoss in the final over when Pollard was batting on 49. The umpire turned down what was a weak appeal from Saini but India took the review and successfully overturned the on-field decision.”I was thinking it was not-out, I appealed but the umpire also gave it not-out. But Virat paaji went for the review. He was saying ‘there’s a review remaining. why waste it? Let’s take it’. When the decision was overturned and it was given out, I was delighted,” Saini added.Young Saini will be raring to go once again in Florida as India eye a series-sealing win against the West Indies in the 2nd T20I on Sunday.Also Read | Gautam Gambhir blasts Bishen Bedi, Chetan Chauhan after Navdeep Saini’s dream India debutAlso Read | India vs West Indies: Navdeep Saini can be really quick on good bowling wickets, says Bhuvneshwar KumarAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
