SANTIAGO.- Despite being one of the key players in Saturday’s match, when his team Real Sociedad defeated Salamanca by a score of 1-0 in the Second Division of Spanish soccer, the group’s Chilean goal keeper was quite worried by the end of the game.
Bravo, who is also the goal keeper for the Chilean national soccer team, suffered a minor pulled muscle in back portion of his left calf.
With two South Africa World Cup qualifying matches coming up against Paraguay and Bolivia respectively, the team immediately feared the worst.
Bravo is a key player in the layout designed by Coach Marcelo Bielsa and the Argentine national is keeping a close eye on his goalie’s condition.
Nevertheless, a new medical report released by Real Sociedad today indicated that the former Colo Colo player suffered a tear in the muscle fibers of his left leg.
Initial exams show a small muscle tear that will keep Bravo from playing at least the next match with his team.
The report means that Bielsa´s plan could still work, since all indications are that Bravo will be in good condition to play against Paraguay and Bolivia.
