    TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras – Olimpia goalkeeper Donis Escober suffered multiple fractures to his right cheekbone in a collision during a 7-1 win over visiting Vida in a 2017 Honduran Clausura match on Wednesday night.

    The 36-year-old Honduras international, who was injured trying to gain possession of a 50/50 ball, underwent surgery later in the evening. Olimpia announced Thursday that he’s expected to be out of action for three weeks.

    Escober will miss Honduras’ international friendly against Jamaica on February 16 and his status for World Cup qualifiers against the United States (March 24, away) and Costa Rica (March 28, home) is unclear.

    Last month, Escober helped Honduras to capture the 2017 Copa Centroamericana title, appearing in four of five matches.
