Ouch. That looked extremely painful. Luckily I've never broken a leg before. I hope he recovers in due time.

From Arsenal.com

Eduardo has given his account of the terrible events at Birmingham City on Saturday.

The Croatian, 25 on Monday, broke his leg following a challenge from Blues defender Martin Taylor in the third minute of the game at St Andrews. He was taken to hospital and underwent surgery that night. The striker has since returned to a London-based hospital for further treatment.

Speaking for the first time after the incident, the summer signing from Dinamo Zagreb ruled himself out of the rest of the season and Euro 2008 in the summer however he added that he is 'determined to overcome this injury'.

“I don't remember the incident very well and it is not something that I want to see again on television or in the newspapers," said Eduardo.

"All I remember is that when I fell, I looked down at my foot and it had turned the other way. The rest is just a blank. It was an unfortunate situation but these things can happen in football.

“I am unsure at the moment of the extent of the injury and how long I will be out of action for but I know that I won't be able to play for Arsenal for the rest of the season or be ready in time for the Euros this summer.

"But I'm not worried about that. My concentration and determination is on making as quick a recovery as possible. I am determined to overcome this injury.

“I would like to thank the medical team here at Arsenal for their efforts as well as the staff at Selly Oak Hospital who carried out the operation on Saturday night. Everyone there made me feel as comfortable as possible.

"I would also like to say how touched I am by the many messages of support I have received and to be surrounded by my loved ones at this time.”

thats shite panchester. He hasnt said anything like that. He's handled himself very well saying how "these things can happen football" and how he will do his best to get back playing again. Not once did he make any reference to taylor

This sucks. He has great potential and now he has to overcome a horrible injury like this. I read on www.foxsportsworld.com that if his injury had not been treated right away, his foot would have had to been amputated. Luckily, this was taken care of and he was treated immediately.

What also sucks about this is he is not gonna be able to play for Croatia in EURO 2008!!! He was scoring most of our goals!!! We might be in a little bit of trouble now that he is out.

i was driving home and i got thinking. how come these horrific leg breaks happen mostly in the british leagues? all the ones that have been talked about here and in the other topic have mentioned those that have taken place in either the EPL or the SPL and i can't reallly think of a really bad one in another league.

The British leagues are the most physical leagues im sure of it. We certainly dont play much football over here :P

ha well i've noticed the physicality of the league. i enjoy watching the up and down pace of it. Aiden Mcgeady of celtic has become one of my better liked players because of the way he plays. i just thought it was odd that you don't really hear about it in other leagues really.

True, I think there are many other incidents similar to these. Just that they were not covered in the news.

Yes, i saw the tackle. Now he's out of the Euro 2008, but Croatia still has a good chance of winning!
