X-ray revealed no break and he's having an MRI this morning. If the swelling is under control and the MRI doesn't show anything sinister he'll be able to play. Didn't look good but hopefully won't take him out of the tournament.
Exactly what I thought. Reports say he dislocated his ankle but popped it back into place so he may be fine to play. By the way he calmly popped it back in I'd say he's 100% done it before. I would have been lying on the floor screaming for a while, haha.
I have a really dodgy left ankle. I go over on it loads and it has stopped swelling up or hurting much when I do. Maybe he has previous with this as it looked to pop out fairly easily and go back quickly.
First watch live I thought "he's bust his ankle" and then he was so calm I thought his shoe had come off and he was popping that back on! He surely must have done it before to calmly pop it back in like that.
watched it earlier - eeuch!!! But then again - i've seen a mate tear the cruciate ligaments of one knee playing football and his leg doing all sorts of unnatural gross things...I was only yards away...
I used to play rugby with someone who had his shoulder taped up every week. Most weeks he would tackle someone and it would pop out. He popped it back in, a bit more tape, finish the game and back to play the following week.
Having done that ,ore times than I care to remember, it makes me feel sick to the stomach. It's obviously not the first time he had done that but. There is no way I would run like like with Bambi's ankles.
