Sometimes being a last ditch defender can hurt. Badly.
Reigning Bundesliga champs Borussia Dortmund could only record a 1-1 draw at Hannover over the weekend, but the visitors were indebtted to their Polish fullback Lukasz Piszczek for saving a certain goal from on the goalline.
As the first half wound down, a Hannover shot was rolling goalwards before Piszczek raced back to clear the effort from the goalline. Piszczek’s block came at a heavy price though, as the defender’s momentum saw him end up wrapping his legs around the post in a truly painful moment.
We only hope there was no permanent damage.
