Sam Ward had surgical procedure on his facial fractures earlier in November

Nice Britain and England hockey participant Sam Ward says he’ll do “all the things he can” to return to hockey after dropping the sight in his left eye.

The 28-year-old was struck within the face by the ball through the Olympic qualifying play-off win in opposition to Malaysia on three November.

Ward, who scored twice in that sport to assist GB safe Tokyo 2020 qualification, sustained a crushed retina and facial fractures.

BBC Sport earlier incorrectly reported Ward had retired.

“Over the previous week, I’ve acquired recommendation from three separate eye consultants,” stated Ward.

“They’ve all instructed me that I’ve suffered harm to the retina of my left eye and that this harm is partly irreversible.

“I’ll get some sight again, however this would possibly not be a fast course of, and whether or not will probably be ample for me to get again to taking part in worldwide hockey solely time will inform.

“It’s a powerful capsule to swallow however, as folks know, I’m not one to surrender simply and I’ll do all the things I can to make myself out there for choice for Tokyo.”

GB Hockey says will probably be a “variety of months” earlier than the extent of the harm to Ward’s eye is thought.

“Sam has suffered a really critical damage,” stated efficiency director Ed Barney.

“Our focus is on supporting Sam to the very best extent and making certain that he has entry to the perfect medical provision and wider assist. The gamers and workers want Sam effectively throughout this difficult interval.”

Ward has scored 72 targets in 126 appearances for Nice Britain and England.

He made his worldwide debut in 2014 and represented Nice Britain on the Rio 2016 Olympics, earlier than serving to England to European and Commonwealth Video games bronze in 2017 and 2018 respectively.
