West Ham and Burnley met at London Stadium for the 33rd date of the Premier League and with very little that happened, 20 minutes into the first half a surprising event happened: Nikola Vlasic hit Ashley Westwood hard.

What seemed like a simple foul turned into a dramatic situation. When the Croatian realized the damage suffered by the rival, he was moved; he touched her head with both hands, he knelt in the middle of the stadium and burst into tears.

His opponent suffered open fracture.

After nearly five minutes of immediate medical attention, which literally paralyzed the stadium, Westwood had to get out on a stretcher carrying oxygen tube to facilitate your breathing. However, the calm face of the wounded brought peace to his comrades and rivals. Of course, he had to be replaced by Josh Brownhill because he didn’t keep up.

As the game continued, Burnley took the lead through a goal scored by Dutchman Wout Weghorst, who offered the conversion to his injured teammate.

West Ham were able to equalize 15 minutes from the end, through Czech Tomas Soucek, who headed in a center run by former Rivers, Manuel Lanzini.

The game finally ended 1-1, but after what happened, the result was anecdotal.

In fact, despite the tension experienced at the stadium due to Westwood’s injury and Vlasic’s tears, there was a tribute to Carlitos Tevez who received a shirt before the game started and was honored by the management.

Carlitos Tevez was honored before the match in recognition of Apache for rescuing West Ham from relegation in the 2006/07 season.

Although for the idol of Boca English is “very difficult” (very difficult); He was encouraged to answer a question asked in English. “Come on Hammers”, apparently said the Apache, who replied after the gesture not quite understanding what the journalist had asked him.
