Other Lions with 
serious injuries recently

HASSAN SUNNY

The 30-year-old goalkeeper was out of action for more than a year in 2011, after twice tearing the ACL in his right knee.

He came back and won the Great Eastern-Yeo's S.League title with Warriors last season and bagged the Footballer of the Year accolade.

HARISS HARUN

The midfielder tore his knee ligaments ahead of the 2008 Suzuki Cup and missed out again in 2010 when he fractured his right leg while playing at the Asian Games in Guangzhou, China.

He did taste action in the victorious 2012 campaign, completing just one group stage game before fracturing his fibula against Indonesia in the second match.

FAZRUL NAWAZ

The hard-working forward fractured his skull and cheekbone after he was kicked in the head by ATM's Amiridzwan Taj while featuring for LionsXII last year.

He returned to action in March this year with his new club Warriors, wearing protective headgear similar to that used by Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech.

KHAIRUL AMRI

The 29-year-old LionsXII forward fractured his cheekbone earlier this season after being elbowed by Felda United midfielder Ahmad Syamim Yahya. He was ruled out for about two months.

In 2010, he tore one of his leg muscles while playing for Persiba Balikpapan in Indonesia and was out of action for about eight months.
