Netease Sports reported on October 10:
In the first round of the world preliminaries, Colombian right back Arias suffered a serious injury. Arias was injured in a miserable condition, and the big V-level media on social networks expressed that they "dare not watch".
Less than 10 minutes into the game, Arias suffered a serious injury. When returning to the defensive tackle, Arias stabbed the ball out of the baseline, but at the same time it also made the opposing player Marches lose balance. Marches fell on Arias, and Arias's left ankle took the entire weight of the opponent in an "anti-joint" manner, and his left foot immediately slumped down from the ankle 90 degrees laterally.
After getting up, Marches looked back at Arias, who was holding his leg sorely, and then immediately pointed to the other party to signal the doctor to enter the arena quickly. Marches then covered his eyes with his hands, and he did not dare to watch this tragedy. The referee first showed the red card to Marches, but cancelled the red card under the reminder of the VAR referee. After all, Marches did not make any subjective injury.
Arias was quickly carried off the field on a stretcher, and the video of his treatment was also spreading rapidly on social networks. Arias's left ankle was obviously completely dislocated, and the lower leg bone was about to break through the skin. The team doctor forced Arias to break his ankle and reset the joint. Arias screamed with pain at this moment.
Colombian reporter Tapia pointed out that Arias is likely to recuperate from injury for 4-6 months. In the 16/17 season, Barcelona player Alex Vidal suffered a similar total dislocation of an ankle injury. He recuperated for 5 months after surgery before returning.
