Later that same day, it is revealed that the player is suffering from multiple health issues, from vision issues to problems with his migraines.
He would ask the doctor if he had done anything wrong to deserve this. But the doctor will assure him that he can only hope for the best.

Blue Lock Chapter 172 also takes a look at Isagi’s training ahead of the game against England.
Summary of the previous chapter!
Blue Lock Chapter 171 began with Yoichi planning his next move for the match. He looked at the scoreboard and realized that scoring a goal was important to be selected for the final U-20 team. Although he brought his team to the winning line, the goal certainly wasn’t in his basket. The teammates later discussed that in addition to the games, all of their talks were also broadcast nationally at all times.
On the other hand, Lavinho still criticized the scoring system at Blue Lock. Judging by the results and the bidding number, he couldn’t be among the forwards in the next game. In the next scene, fans see Yukimiya Kenyu enter. He explained to the players that this is no longer the football they used to play. The chapter ended with Isagi admitting that Lavinho was his next target.
