Samuel Ward Uses Raptor Mask After Injury
Samuel Ward’s Injury
Late 2019 in November saw Sam sustain a horrible injury after playing against Malaysia as he had already scored twice and was hovering around the goal area as his teammate took a shot at goal and hit him in the head.
The balls speed was around 50mph as most of the injury hovered around his eye as he was rushed off to surgery to help with the pain.
Sam confirmed that during the surgery, they “literally took my face off during surgery” to get access to his eye, which left scarring.
Although Sam’s surgery was a success, his surgeon would have to deliver devastating news that he had irreparable retina damage. This meant that he would sustain lifelong loss of sight in his one eye.
