The Marc Overmars of the Martin O'Neill era, Arkadiusz Milik tweeted out a picture of his swollen knee following James McClean's crunching tackle last Sunday.
The Ajax man is out for a month following the challenge.
Now, we don't want to be unsympathetic to a guy who has to sit on the sidelines for a month following ligament damage. He was clearly shaken by the challenge which the Polish team doctor described as 'scary'.
But, frankly the picture is a bit lacking in the gore department. His knee looks fairly swollen allright but the considered opinion here is that we've seen worse. It's not exactly Lachie Munro.

He also uses the Friedrich Nietzsche phrase 'what doesn't kill you makes you stronger'. Many other philosophers have done a job on this phrase, with one writer pointing out 'what doesn't kill you doesn't make you stronger. It makes you weaker and then it kills you later on.'
Although, admittedly that is rather less inspirational.
