He first seemed motionless but was later seen moving around his arms. He was then carted off the field on the stretcher and taken to a local hospital to undergo tests.

“Hirving Lozano is stable, conscious and he will be medically examined,” the team said in a statement during the match.

LA Galaxy player Efrain Alvarez came on as Lozano’s substitute.
