Eric Dier picked up a pretty serious looking knock during the first half of Tottenham’s draw with Fulham on Wednesday night.
The defender was involved in a collision that sent him sprawling beyond the byline, but he still managed to drag himself back onto the playing area before writhing in pain.
He knew exactly what he was doing – Dier ensured the game would be stopped so that Fulham wouldn’t capitalise on the fact he was off the pitch.
Thankfully he was OK to continue! Watch the moment below, as shared on Twitter by @TranSPURS.
