"Some players, they nearly cried. Andre was in shock.

"His eyes were open so big. He was crying, shouting and screaming.

"I just tried to hold him and speak to him. I tried to tell him to stay calm.

"We couldn't understand him. He was the one who had got the injury."


All football fans around the world will be hoping Gomes makes a full recovery and that he'll be back on the pitch as soon as possible.
