MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Lokomotiv Moscow and Peru forward Jefferson Farfan suffered a head injury during his team's training session as the national team continued their preparations for their last Group C game against Australia at the FIFA World Cup, the Spanish media reported on Saturday.

According to the depor.com, Farfan collided with a teammate and lost consciousness during the training session on Saturday.

The 33-year-old forward has undergone medical tests in Moscow and stayed at the hospital as a precaution.

Peru lost 1-0 to France in their second Group C match on Thursday, while also suffering defeat in their first game against Denmark by the same scoreline.

​Peru’s defeats mean they have been eliminated from the World Cup and have yet to score a goal at the tournament.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia kicked off on June 14 and will continue until July 15, with the matches being played in 11 cities across the country.
