This is disgraceful. Player clearly knocked unconscious but allowed to return to the pitch. Given the prominence of concern about concussion related injuries, for this to happen in a competitive international match is scandalous.




Yeah in the future this is going to look even worse as they do more and more work on concussions.

My son plays as a defender in the District League &, shall we say, likes to be in the thick of it. A couple of weeks ago, he was smacked on the back of the head by his own keeper who missed a punched clearance & was out cold for 20-30 seconds apparently. The ref ordered him subbed immediately, much to his disgust, but if it's happening at that level then it shows there's a level of common sense getting into the game that really needs to be demonstrated at the top level.
