Martin Skrtel posts picture of staples in head he used to score crucial goal
Liverpool's Martin Skrtel came up with a stoppage-time goal at Anfield on Sunday to salvage a point against Arsenal. Skrtel used his bandaged head to drive home a corner kick and pull the Reds even.
In the 52nd minute of the match, Skrtel and Arsenal's Olivier Giroud crashed into one another. Giroud inadvertently stepped on Skrtel's head, leaving the Liverpool defender with a bloody gash in his skull. Skrtel received his treatment, bandaged up the cut and returned to the match for the eventual game-tying goal.
After the match, Skrtel posted a photo of the aftermath.
And who says soccer players aren't tough?
