In one of the moments of the soccer game, 37-year-old Zlatan Ibrahimovic elbows defender Mohamed El-Munir, injuring him. Now the association football (soccer) player will have to undergo an operation.
The Egyptian Orlando City footballer posted a photo on Twitter, where the injury caused by the Swede is visible in an X-ray.
On 22 July, El-Munir was diagnosed: the footballer suffered a broken cheekbone in a match against Galaxy.
Controversially, the referee did not react to the incident.
Both players insisted upon their innocence after the match.
The game ended with a 3:2 LA victory. All three Galaxy goals were scored by Ibrahimovic.
