Gutierrez injury blow adds to Newcastle woes
Newcastle United midfielder Jonas Gutierrez suffered a shoulder injury during Argentina's draw with Peru on Thursday morning.
The former Velez and Mallorca midfielder collided with Peru's Paolo De La Haza after just 16 minutes of the South American World Cup qualifier in Lima and was replaced by Sebastian Battaglia.
Initial reports from the Argentinian delegation suggested Jonas, who moved to St James' Park from Mallorca this summer, had suffered a dislocated shoulder but after the match Football Association press officer Andres Ventura played down the injury.
He said: 'Jonas suffered a strong trauma to his right shoulder and he will need more medical examinations.'
