Whitecaps’ Ali Ahmed taken to hospital after scary tackle in Canadian Championship

LANGFORD, B.C. – Vancouver Whitecaps player Ali Ahmed left the Canadian Championship semifinal against Pacific FC on a stretcher in the first half.

The Whitecaps posted to social media that Ahmed was conscious and is receiving treatment at a local hospital.

Ahmed had scored a volleyed goal beforehand and was tackled shortly after the restart.

The left wingback was upended by Cedric Toussaint in a clean tackle and did not move at first.

Medical officials, as well as a stretcher and vehicle, were brought on to the field to transport him off.

Some of the Vancouver players looked shocked by the injury, with midfielder — and opening goal scorer — Julian Gressel appearing to be on the verge of tears.
