FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (July 9, 2020) — Andrés Reyes was carted from the pitch last night after suffering an injury in the 51st minute following a clash with Orlando City’s Dom Dwyer.
Reyes was evaluated following the injury and released from the hospital last night. He is now back at the team hotel and resting. He will remain isolated pending COVID-19 test results and clearance from officials on site before rejoining his teammates. Additionally, Reyes will continue to be monitored and evaluated by medical personnel at Disney’s Swan and Dolphin Resort. The nature of his injury was not disclosed, although it was obvious that Reyes was having breathing difficulties after the collision and while being attended to on the pitch. What was also concerning was the length of time it took emergency personnel to respond, which was over four minutes and with no apparent urgency. This is clearly not an acceptable response rate.
Goalkeeper and team captain Luis Robles said losing Andres Reyes last night, “completely changed the entire complexion of the game.”
Inter Miami will continue the MLS tournament with its second group stage match on July 14 against Philadelphia at 10:30 p.m. ET. The match is set to air on TUDN.
