The Celtic player has been sidelined from the Swedish team, missing out on the European Championships last summer, but injuries to others and his domestic play have given him a starting spot in the first of four Nations League fixtures.

Pictures from last night showed Starfelt in evident discomfort when he was stretchered off just before halftime, but a story from Swedish publisher Expressen this morning was a little more positive.

Midfielder Carl Starfelt says he felt a stab in the back. Now the X-ray is waiting to see how serious the injury is

“It is of course not fun, especially not when you get the chance to play and then it is clear that you want to take it. But sometimes it’s like that in football, I have to see now what kind of injury it is then I have to take it for that reason, “he says.

Does the whole collection feel run down?

“We’ll see, it does not look very bright. If you are lucky, the X-ray may not show anything and I can recover in a few days, but right now I do not see it as very likely.”

This month’s pre-season training camp in Austria looks like a more feasible goal for Starfelt than the final three Nations League matches.

Celtic signed Rubin Kazan defender in July of last year, and following quarantine, he was rushed into his Premiership debut against Hearts three days after his new club’s away game against Midtjylland.
