The defender was substituted just before half-time during his country's 2-1 friendly defeat to South Korea in Seoul and, like Lucas Digne, is doubtful for Saturday's trip to West Ham.
Digne strained a thigh muscle in training with the France team over the weekend and missed the 4-0 win over Iceland.
Everton's medical team will assess Mina's problem at Finch Farm tomorrow before offering an official prognosis but preliminary reports suggest that he could be sidelined until the middle of next month.
Mina has been in and out of contention during his first season in England, missing the first few weeks of the campaign with a foot injury and then spending a couple more months out after picking up a knock against Millwall in the FA Cup in January.

I seem to remember he had a few (or one bad) injuries at Palmeiras. so this is not a totally new issue. Hmmmm.

How is Hollgate doing at WBA? I thought he showed some real promise for us when he had a run in the first team.

Its a great shame for Mina because he played well against Chelsea and you just thought now might be the time he finally gets a good run of games but no.
I think we need to just write this season off for Yerry, get him looked at thoroughly in the summer and see if we can find out quite why all these injury issues keep arising with him.
Hopefully next season he can finally get a run in the team because I do think theres a player in there once he gets up and running, physically he has all the right attributes its just about getting him on that damn pitch more.

He's had no run of games this season so starting two games so quickly after returning is just asking for trouble.
He should've been back at Finch Farm working on conditioning training, focusing on improving his fitness.

Mina seems injury prone so a quality CB may be a priority in the summer. I suppose Jags and Baines will be back at the weekend.
16 Posted 27/03/2019 at 14:47:59
This really hampers some teams who don't have the strength in depth like the top 4 or five teams with the big money to keep top players in reserve.
As everyone agrees this has been a disappointing season if only because we all expected a lot more with a new gaffer and new ideas.
I suspect nothing much will change over the final seven games as they have shown just how inconsistent they really are and although the second half show against Chelski can be applauded they just don't be able to continue it into the next match.
17 Posted 27/03/2019 at 15:32:08
Having said that in Mina's case, he does seem to pick up injuries very easily, unless it is the same injury being aggravated by playing too early in the healing process.
18 Posted 27/03/2019 at 16:06:23
This season has been a wright off for him and with Zouma going back to Chelsea a new CB becomes a priority unless one of the kids has impressed enough.
I like Holgate but I think he needs another year of two but fingers crossed he steps up sooner
19 Posted 27/03/2019 at 16:10:24
How many player plus cash deals happen these days? Generally speaking its the sort of thing media push but just doesnt happen.
Plus, Brands has stated his commitment to youth. Whilst that doesnt mean every young player will be retained its not likely he would exchange promising talent for a player with a couple of years left.

Darron Gibson mk 2 ?
21 Posted 27/03/2019 at 16:33:38
The classic was Bryan Robson, all action ‘captain Marvel bullshit. In reality he threw himself into all tackles, and actually wasnt very good at it. His injury record was mostly his fault, he repeatedly bust or dislocated his shoulder...and just kept careering into players.
Is Mina like that? Maybe. He might just be unlucky but Everton dont have the luxury of finding out. He needs to stay fit and that is mostly down to the player.
He is very fortunate that Zouma will in most of all likelihoods go back to Chelsea.
Its not a position that constantly rotating, it unsettles the team. Pretty disappointing.
22 Posted 27/03/2019 at 16:37:58
We bought him with an injury and if never really changed.
23 Posted 27/03/2019 at 17:05:04
24 Posted 27/03/2019 at 17:27:48
Jack (15) - personally, I'm not really buying the Rondon links. He's a nice enough player (obviously scored against us in both Newcastle matches), but he's almost 30 and represents only a modest upgrade on Calvert-Lewin... and that's assuming Calvert-Lewin doesn't continue to improve.

Bryan played over seven hundred games, in all .competitions for WBA, Man.Unt and Middlesborough

About time we started toughening up as a club instead of being a fucking soft touch. Get rid... Maybe through in Tosun or Walcott as a freebie.

34 Posted 27/03/2019 at 22:00:12
Well I never!
It's disappointing in the extreme Mina's injured, again. He needs games. I, too, fear the injury carousel spinning with Yerry. And we'll need a CB with Zouma leaving as many have pointed out.
Mina, Holgate (?), Jags (prefer him now in a backup role), and who?
Is there a promising CB in the youth ranks?
Seems like there's always holes to fill with Everton. Sigh.

Lucky if we get 20 games out of him this season so it will be even more money per game by August!
Of all the things I have seen lately the Sportrac website, put up by Mike Gaynes, was the most depressing. Our players are on an absolute fortune for the most part and the VFM is abysmal in most cases.
37 Posted 27/03/2019 at 23:35:52
Also, and my memory can always stand correction, I seem to remember WBA playing the Shite and Bryan stood in the box, ball at feet, and Ray Clemence tried to come around him and pick it up. Robson simply back-heeled the ball into what was now an empty net :^)
Also, I didn't mind Ray Clemence. He had the good sense to leave the dark side.

39 Posted 28/03/2019 at 00:53:56
But maybe Ive got a blind spot with Robson. Far less the selfless man he was portrayed as, I saw a self absorbed player who made it about him, oddly that shoulder he blew out in Mexico (against Morocco) actually helped England!! It gave us Reid and a better balance, ‘Everland were much better for it.
Once Ferguson was in charge he was definitely phased out, and injury limited him to maybe half the league games???
Oi! JaC Imagine a Florida man jumping straight to a Jersey stereotype! 😵
Im from Bootle but yeah its the same difference. 😆

Of the bazillion things I've come to learn on TW, I will never forget the Liverpool mathematical equation:

His big downfall was that he was an absolute lush, even by those days' standards. Like a certain 'legend' No 9 we know, excess drinking weakens your body and affects your judgement.
Makes you wonder how good he could have been.

Can't blame Mina if he wants to stay in Colombia for a bit longer, visited there once and the women are HOT.

Hes a fraud, and was a Brands signing too,
due diligence Marcel before spending £25 million.
Doesnt look like it to me.
