BOCAUE, Bulacan – The Philippine men’s football team is holding its breath over the knee injury suffered by Stephan Schrock early in the Azkals’ 2-1 win over Bahrain in the World Cup Qualifiers on Thursday night.

The returning star midfielder hurt his knee that forced him to come out 23 minutes into the match and replaced by Misagh Bahadoran, who didn’t disappoint by scoring the opening goal early in the second half.

Azkals coach Thomas Dooley fears Schrock hurt a ligament in his knee and said he will undergo an MRI on Friday morning to find out.

The German-American mentor has hinted Schrock could miss the Azkals next match against Yemen on Tuesday in Qatar.

“He could be out for at least two weeks,” Dooley said.
