Looked pretty bad, hope is not that serious. Reminds me of the time Nani had his leg with a gash yet the ref didn't stop the game (I guess because he tends to exaggerate). He then ran from one side of the pitch to the other to show the ref and ask him to show a red card to, I believe, was a Liverpool player. As he showed the ref the gash, he realized it was actually really bad and finally dropped to the ground crying. I felt bad, but that has been one of the few occasions that I've seen a footballer get injured and laughed.
