Injury update: Iker Casillas was substituted at 16’ because of a thumb injury. He has bruising and swelling and told reporters after the match that he hopes it’s nothing serious. Iker also posted a photo of his left hand, stating that more tests were needed to rule out a fracture.
He drove himself to Sanitas La Moraleja Hospital around 2:30 in the morning and left less than an hour later [photo]. There were rumblings than he’d be out a week or two, but this was said before he stopped by the hospital. Iker did not divulge any information once he left, and there is currently no official word from the club.
