The Direction Pad is down


A friend gave me a GB classic in a very good condition. At least from an oustide point of view: not yellowed, no scratch on the screen, etc..

The only problem is that the direction is down so I decided to fix it and opened the GB by thinking that it was only a contact issue

But no.. I noticed that the logic board was a little "broken and splitted" in the area of the direction pad circuit. See picture below

Do you think that there's a way to repair it?
