Footballer Virgil van Dijk was hit very hard yesterday during a match with his club Liverpool. The clubs afraid itll keep him injured for months.
Van Dijk fell out with a knee injury and according to some English newspapers he ruptured his cruciate ligament. If that really is the case, then that is also bad news for the Dutch team. Van Dijk is the captain of Oranje.
Recovery from such an injury can take up to 9 months, so that means he would miss a lot of games. In the worst case, he will not be able to participate in the European Football Championships next year. The footballer has not yet responded.
Evertons goalkeeper made the offense on Van Dijk. He apologized after the game.
