Maarten Stekelenburg vows to bounce back following brutal Lucio head kick

The Dutch shot-stopper was laid unconscious and stretchered off the field during the 0-0 draw, when he dived at the feet of the big Brazilian, who caught him in the head with a toe-punt.

In scenes reminiscent of Petr Cech’s career-threatening injury for Chelsea against Reading in 2008, Stekelenburg was taken to hospital following the collision, where he underwent a CT scan, but was thankfully given the all-clear by Italian medical staff.

The story is too old to be commented.
