VIDEO: Degerfors substitute poked in the eye by player he replaced

Botched high five results in injury.


Substituted Degerfors midfielder Axel Lindahl accidentally poked his replacement Mattias Özgun in the eye during Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Östers.

The Swedish second tier match at the Myresjöhus Arena was entering its final stages when Degerfors head coach Stefan Jacobsson made the switch.


Lindahl exchanges high fives with Özgun on his way off the pitch but gets it badly wrong and ends up planting a stray finger in his team-mate’s eye.

21-year-old Özgun, on loan from Elfsborg, had to go straight back off again to receive treatment.

In the game itself, early goals from Carl Johansson and Rasmus Alm ensured a share of the spoils that leaves Degerfors 2nd in the nascent Superettan table.
