Viana was injured in a clash with Italiano forward Omar Zalazar in the 78th minute.

There was no obvious injury and the 22-year-old goalkeeper played on, saving a penalty taken by Cristian Canuhé on 89 minutes to earn his team a 0-0 draw.

However, afterwards he complained of severe pain in the dressing room and underwent emergency surgery after it was diagnosed as a perforated intestine.

Wanderers said the operation had gone well and Viana was expected to recover in around four weeks.
