SEVILLE.- Chilean soccer player Mark González continues to experience problems after not taking to the field during a match between his club, Betis, and Osasuna, due to an injury in the quadriceps of his left leg. According to his team's physicians, the player has once again been denied medical permission to play in a match on this upcoming Sunday against Club Deportivo in La Coruña.
Mark González, who until now has only participated in 10 league matches due to various injuries, also remains unconfirmed for the two upcoming 2010 World Cup qualifying matches against Peru and Uruguay next week, under the summons of national team coach Marcelo Bielsa.
The way things are going, it seems most likely that the winger will not be able to participate in the matches. It is also appearing as though Arturo Vidal will not be able to take the field either.
Another injured Betis player, Italian-Brazilian player Luiz Eduardo Scmidt, or 'Edu', will not be able to play at the confrontation with Deportivo either, since he is currently waiting for the Finnish doctor who operated on him, Sakari Orava, to allow him to resume training with the squad.
