A Russian defender has been cleared of any damage to his vertebra after he suffered a terrifying fall during their game against Finland in the European Championship on Wednesday.
Russia’s Mario Fernandes went up to try and head the ball in the 26th minute of the game at Saint Petersburg Stadium in Russia, but ended up landing directly on his back. Fernandez reached for his neck almost instantly, too, clearly in pain.
