Everton defender Ashley Williams has undergone surgery after suffering a collapsed lung while playing for Wales.
The 33-year-old lasted just 17 minutes of his side’s friendly with Mexico before being forced off after a collision with Javier Hernandez.
Williams broke two ribs in the clash, which punctured his lung and then led to it collapsing.
As a result, he needed to have surgery to repair the damage, and was taken to Ronald Reagan UCLA hospital in Beverly Hills, from where he posted a message to his Facebook followers detailing his condition.
“Crazy couple weeks.. great to be back in a FA Wales shirt & with the lads, however after coming off after 20 mins with multiple breaks on two ribs, I went hospital & found out I had punctured my left lung which led to it collapsing,” Williams wrote.
