Drągowski ended up injured in the 15th round of Serie A against Verona – in the 38th minute, he collided with the opponent’s No. 11 Lasagna, and was taken away on a stretcher for treatment due to a deformed ankle. At that time, some media said that Drongovsky’s injury may not be optimistic. When asked by reporters after the game, Spezia coach Luka Gotti also took a pessimistic attitude: “It can be seen from the image that Drongovsky’s injury is not minor. We have not yet determined his specific situation. Circumstances, however, because of injuries, he can’t play in the World Cup.”
