US star injured in car crash

Charlie Davies

United States striker Charlie Davies has suffered serious injuries in a Washington car accident that killed a female companion.

The 23 year old’s hopes of appearing at next summer’s World Cup finals in South Africa are now in doubt after he was confirmed to have  multiple facial fractures, a badly broken right leg, a broken left elbow and a lacerated bladder.

According to US Soccer physician Dan Kablac, the injuries will require extensive rehabilitation over the next six months and he is hopeful that Davies will be ready for June.

“Due to Charlie’s fitness level, his prognosis recovery and his ability to resume high-level competition is substantially improved,” he said.

Davies played a key role in the United States’ 3-2 win over Honduras at the weekend and plays his club football in France with Sochaux.

One thought on “US star injured in car crash

  1. A football article about the Irish national team and no mention of Andy Reid or Sephen Ireland (by name)? I am shocked and apauled. How can this ‘journalist’ expect to be taken seriously if he doesn’t follow to the strict guidlines of repetition, repetition, repetition in the Irish media. This man surely is the definition of a renegade. Look out Mr. Dunphy, your about to meet your match.
