Keylor Navas hamstring layoff

Keylor Navas could miss at least a week of first-team action after sustaining a hamstring injury on international duty with Costa Rica.

The Real Madrid goalkeeper now looks set to miss his side’s trip to Getafe on Saturday and could well miss their Champions League tie at home to Tottenham on Tuesday night.

“After the game against Honduras, Keylor felt an issue in his right leg,” Alejandro Ramirez, the Costa Rican team doctor, told the FA’s website.

“A series of tests were carried out which showed he had a soft tissue strain in his right hamstring muscle.”

Madrid also released a statement although they did not detail any injury: “Following his return from international duty, Keylor Navas worked out indoors.

“Gareth Bale, Mateo Kovacic and Dani Carvajal continued with their respective recovery programmes.”

Kiko Casilla is set to replace Navas for any matches the former Levante goalkeeper is unavailable for.
