Inter worried as Buchanan taken away by ambulance after Canada injury

Inter are on tenterhooks after reports Canada international Tajon Buchanan was taken away by ambulance following a serious injury in training.

The 25-year-old is currently participating in the Copa America with his country and was expected to start the next match.

Instead, he could be out for a significant amount of time, as during training ground drills today he suffered a serious injury to the lower leg following a coming together.

It was so bad that he had to be stretchered off and taken by ambulance to a local hospital in Dallas for an MRI scan.

According to TSN Sports, the mood in the Canada camp was ‘sombre’ following the devastating setback.

Canada defender Alistair Johnston even told TSN the injury could be ‘heard’ as soon as it happened, which might suggest a fracture.

Inter experience for Buchanan

Buchanan only joined Inter in January from Club Brugge at a cost of €7m and made history as the first ever Canadian to score in Serie A.

If the right-back is out for a long time, then Inter might have to seek a replacement on the transfer market, which was not part of their budget or strategy.

He was brought in effectively to replace Juan Cuadrado, who has now left as a free agent.
