Everton Andre Gomes suffered a horrific injury in Everton’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham at Goodison Park on Sunday.
The former Barcelona midfielder had to be taken from the field on a stretcher after Son Heung Min’s challenge saw him fall awfully as he was caught, appearing to suffer what might well be a broken ankle.
While tracking back, the South Korean forward went in to try and win the ball off Gomes with a lunging tackle, one that led to the Portuguese picking up a nasty injury after he collided with Aurier following the South Korean’s challenge.
Gomes’ teammates were shocked and immediately called for the medical team to run onto the pitch, with Gomes’ foot effectively at a right angle to the rest of his leg.
Son went over to apologise and caught sight of the injury, bursting into tears.
At first, Son was shown a yellow card, but after a review by VAR, he was sent off for endangering the safety of another player.
The Spurs attacker is widely regarded as one of the nicest people in football, and he had to be consoled by his teammates and members of staff, while Jordan Pickford and Cenk Tosun also tried to support him
“(I) didn’t want to look too much at what happened. I want to send best wishes,” said Alli.
Twelve minutes were added on at Goodison Park for the injury, and Everton used it to equalise, with Cenk Tosun netting at the death after Alli’s opener.
