THE BIGGER PICTURE: The injury could rob Mexico of one of their stars this summer, with El Tri set for both the Nations League and Gold Cup in the coming months. Lozano, though, will likely be too focused on the celebrations to worry just yet as Naples remains in a festive mood while celebrating their first Serie A triumph since Diego Maradona's days at the club.
WHAT NEXT FOR NAPOLI? The club still has four games left int he Serie A season, starting with a trip to Monza on Sunday.
