With the Toffees leading 1-0 thanks to a Steven Naismith goal, the Costa Rican wideman went down after conceding a free-kick against Simon Hislop 30 yards from his own goal.

Oviedo immediately signalled for attention, and he was treated for around five minutes on the pitch - with surrounding players visibly in shock - before being taken straight to hospital in an ambulance.

Everton went on to win the game, thanks to further strikes from Naismith, Johnny Heitinga and Magaye Gueye.

JOE wishes the 23-year-old Oviedo all the best, and hopes he can resume his career as soon as possible.
