Young Spanish defender, Matthew Morey, was seriously injured during the match between his team, Borussia Dortmund and Holstein Kiel, in the German Cup semi-finals, on Saturday.
In the 63rd minute of the match, Mori tried to cut the ball in front of a Holstein player, so he extended his right foot as far forward, and he succeeded in touching the ball, but his foot then hit the ground, to be subjected to a sharp twist that may have caused him to break.

The medical device quickly rushed to rescue the player, who appeared to be in severe pain, and his colleagues showed a state of extreme fear, the most prominent of whom was the team’s top scorer, the Norwegian Erling Haaland, who watched the match from the stands.
Morey was rushed to hospital for treatment and further tests.
Borussia Dortmund swept its guest Holstein by five to join Leipzig to the final match of the German Cup, to be held at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin, on the 13th of this month.
