Payet’s World Cup dream in doubt after injuring

Payet’s World Cup dream in doubt after injuring in Europa League final

May 16, 2018 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
Possibly not the night the French star had dreamed of.

Superstitious fans will most likely cite Dimitri Payet’s plight as ‘karma’ doing its own thing. Back in the Euro 2016 final, a tackle by the Marseille skipper on Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo resulted in the latter getting injured and being substituted off in the 25th minute.

It's been almost two years since the incident and, this time, it is Dimitri Payet who is the victim. The Frenchman hobbled off the field with was seems to be a thigh injury in the 32nd minute with tears in his eyes.

However, unlike Ronaldo’s feat in the Euro final, exited the field while his side trailed by a goal in their Europa League encounter with Atletico Madrid inside the Stade de France. Antoine Greizmann put the Spanish side ahead after just 21 minutes into the first half.
