New England Revolution fans were dealt some bad news on Tuesday as it was announced that Adam Buksa will be sidelined for a while.
Jakub Kwiatkowski, a Media Officer for the Polish Football Association, tweeted that Buksa suffered a fracture of the third metatarsal and won’t take part in Poland National Team duty in November.
Adam Buksa z powodu złamania III kości śródstopia nie weźmie udziału w listopadowym zgrupowaniu reprezentacji. Zawodnika czeka kilkutygodniowa przerwa w treningach. Na ten moment sztab kadry nie przewiduje dodatkowych powołań w miejsce kontuzjowanego Buksy.— Jakub Kwiatkowski (@KwiatkowskiKuba) November 2, 2021
Losing Buksa for any amount of time would be a big blow for New England. The Polish striker currently leads the Revs in goals scored with 16 and also has four assists.
This has been Buksa’s breakout year in MLS with him also gaining some time with the Polish National Team. Transfer rumors have been surrounding the striker and it seemed like a move to Europe was bound to happen before the start of the 2022 MLS season. For both the Revolution and Buksa, the injury couldn't have come at a worse time.
The Revolution will look to Teal Bunbury, Edward Kizza, and possibly Justin Rennicks to replace Buksa. While still quality players, that is quite a dropoff from an MLS Golden Boot contender.
Fans in New England will be anxiously waiting to see what the starting XI looks like on Sunday against Inter Miami on Decision Day.
Tom Bogert is reporting that Buksa won’t miss any playoff time.
