NAPOLI winger Hirving Lozano was rushed to hospital after a horror head injury on Saturday night.

The 25-year-old was playing for Mexico in their North American Gold Cup game against Trinidad & Tobago in Texas.

Lozano suffered a nasty gash above his eye and needed a neck brace as he was taken off the field.

He was substituted after 11 minutes of the Gold Cup opener at Dallas Cowboys' AT&T Stadium.

Lozano was caught up with Alvin Jones as he went for the ball, and ended up falling onto goalkeeper Marvin Phillip's knee.

ESPN reported that Lozano was motionless but later seen moving his arms before being taken off on a stretcher.

And he was transported straight to a local hospital in Texas.

A team statement during the match said: "Hirving Lozano is stable, conscious and he will be medically examined."

The game at AT&T Stadium ended in a 0-0 draw despite Mexico having 30 shots on goal.

Mexico and Trinidad & Tobago are in Group A of the 16-team North American Gold Cup along with El Salvador and Guatemala.

The final is set to take place on August 1 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
