    Real translation : “”It was shockingly powerful… Like, it really Hertz.” I’m glad he is recovering well. Any parent’s nightmare.

    where is the lightning strike ??? all i see is a flash…with all lightning there is a streak of light from the ground to the sky…we see none of that….I wonder if he stepped on a landmine….or photo-shopped…cause this ain’t real folks, this ain’t real. None of the other players reacted. If this had been a real lightning strike, the other players, in such close proximity, would have certainly reacted….leave it to the russians to fake a footballer being injured by lightning…what a country. Can’t wait till Europe does Clean energy then russia will have no leverage over them with gas shipments….they are on a loosing streak…what next from russia…video showing Putin dancing with the queen of england ?
