Unseen episode of the weekend.
Borussia Dortmund are incredible in 2023: 8 wins in 8 matches. Sandro Schwartz’s Hertha got it at the weekend – 1:4. There was a very rare episode in this game.
Adeyemi was injured, but finished the episode and gave an assist
The match with Hertha was going well for speedy winger Karim Adeyemi: he scored in the 27th minute, crossing the ball like hockey after a Marco Reus shot. And on the 32nd he gave an assist in very unusual conditions.
In a fast attack, I got the ball, turned on the jet speed and quickly ran away from Philip Uremovich (yes, the ex-defender of Rubin). But suddenly he grabbed his leg, slowed down and still gave a pass to the far post. Very elegant and precise, by the way. The main thing is that productive – Donyell Malen struck right into the goal.
Here you can clearly see that Adeyemi clearly felt discomfort and grabbed his thigh.
Sometimes players get injured during a scoring shot, sometimes even during celebrations (for example, Hamburg midfielder Nikolai Muller once torn his cruciate ligaments like that), but with obvious damage, you can’t turn off, finish the game, give an assist and finish the match – this is powerful. Yes, Adeyemi fell flat on the lawn immediately after the assist, waited for the doctors, only with their help he left the field, shedding a tear.
“You yourself are funny, right?” The question of the journalist Valery Karpin became viral – she herself laughed when she asked it
