In the 37th minute of the match against Shenhua, Shenhua sent a long pass from the backcourt. Bi Jinhao followed up and prepared to grab the spot. Yan Junling attacked and spread his hands. As a result, he collided with Bi Jinhao. Bi Jinhao jumped and hit Yan Junling's arm with his arm. For the eyes, after the team doctor entered the field for 8 minutes, Yan Junling couldn't hold on, and the teenager Chen Wei came on the bench.
During the treatment, Yan Junling's left eye was also swollen. The team doctor continued to test Yan Junling, but Yan Junling's eyes had double images. As a goalkeeper, this situation is definitely not acceptable. Although Yan Junling tried to stick to the game, SIPG's coaching staff asked Chen Wei to warm up on the sidelines for the first time, and finally let Chen Wei come off the bench in the 45th minute. Yan Junling left the field regretfully.
After leaving the field on the way to the dressing room, when going down the stairs, perhaps because of eye injuries, Yan Junling staggered and almost fell. Fortunately, there were many staff nearby who helped him in time. After holding on, Yan Junling even had some difficulty walking in a straight line and went off-track.
After the game, Yan Junling updated the social platform for the first time: Thank you for your concern, now I feel much better, but it is not good.
At 19:35 on the 23rd, SIPG will usher in the second round of the match against Shenhua. The 0-0 score in the first round makes the promotion full of variables. Yan Junling's injury is a very big challenge for SIPG.
According to the news from SIPG's official announcement, Yan Junling undergoes surgery, coupled with recovery, and the time will not be short. Whether he can catch up with the Chinese Super League this season is a problem. This is a big variable for SIPG who is aiming to win the championship. . I still hope that he will recover soon, after all, after the Super League is over, the next step is the AFC.
