LDU Quito Player Christian Cruz Breaks His Tibia, Fibula And Ankle In Horror Injury

Liga de Quito defender Christian Cruz suffered a horrific triple fracture in last night's Copa Libertadores quarter final tie against Boca Juniors.

The 27-year-old broke his tibia, fibula and ankle when he blocked a powerful attempt on goal by Boca striker Carlos Tevez in Wednesday's cup clash.

Cruz appeared to land awkwardly on his right leg after his standing foot got caught in the ground.

Boca Juniors striker Lisandro Lopez was praised for his reaction to the injury. The 36-year-old noticed that Cruz had suffered a serious injury and sprinted over to the sidelines to pick up a nearby stretcher.

He carried it onto the pitch so his opposition player could be treated faster.
