A lot of Newcastle United fans have replied to a post from their club that contains an injury update on Fabian Schar.
The tweet claimed that the shoulder injury the 28-year-old suffered against Burnley had been assessed, and he had been given the green light to play for Switzerland as he started in his country’s 2-1 loss against Croatia on Wednesday evening.
However, it seems like he is fine, and Schar played 76 minutes against Croatia, but it was the news that the former Basel man had been given the all-clear to play for his country ahead of the game that pleased these Toon fans.
Do you think Schar should have played for Switzerland?
No, huge risk
Yes, he was fit

However, Clark and Dummett were expected back in training this coming Monday, so Schar could have some competition for the Toon’s next game against Manchester United following the international break.
This news on Schar’s injury continued to attract the attention of these Toon fans, who are worried he will come back from international duty unfit.
He played one game for nufc this season because of injurys we had to throw him in the deep end, he got injured taken off, didn’t look good tbh, now he can go play for Switzerland, bit strange, hope he comes back ok

There’s no way he should be risked playing for Switzerland, what if he’s injured. It’s not a professional way of working at all.

I have a bad feeling about this

It appears Schar made it through against Croatia unscathed, so many Newcastle fans will probably be hoping that he can remain clear of the sidelines for the duration of the international period and is ready for the Toon’s next game against the Red Devils.
