Football Star Suffers Serious Facial Injuries After Fireworks Stunt Backfires On Christmas Day

Penarol striker Lucas Viatri has been left severely wounded after a firework horrifically exploded in his face over the Christmas period in Argentina.
The 30-year-old can be seen in images posted on social media with his face looking swollen, his eyebrows burnt and serious injuries to his right cheekbone.

Argentinian news outlet Infobae has reported the incident occurred on Christmas night while Viatri celebrated with his family and friends in his homeland.
A statement from his Uruguayan club read: "Lucas Viatri suffered an accident with pyrotechnics that affected both eyes. 

"He is in Buenos Aires, where he is resting and examinations are being carried out to establish the relevant treatment."
Viatri joined Penarol in 2017 and helped them to a 51st Uruguayan Premier Division title

They were unable to confirm how long it would take for him to recover though.

Viatri has spent virtually all of his career playing in South America with spells at both Boca Juniors and Estudiantes.

The 30-year-old also played in China for one season with Shanghai Shenua, where he scored four times in 12 appearances.
