Moments after Tim Howard slapped away a Freddie Ljungberg penalty kick to give Everton a win in the MLS All-Star game, Ljungberg was carted off the field complaining of loss of vision and the onset of a migraine.

He was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.

Ljungberg had played all 90 minutes of the game, which began at Rio Tinto Stadium with temperatures at 84 degrees.

Ljungberg has a histroy of migraines and had missed time earlier this season because of them. At the time, he explained that he usually gets them once a year and isn’t sure what causes them.

There isn’t likely to be any more news tonight. I’m traveling Thursday but I’ve asked my editors to post any news they might receive while I’m unavailable.
