Tomas Soucek Displays Gruesome Injury After Boot to the Face

West Ham midfielder Tomas Soucek showcased the aftermath of a brutal incident during his international duty with the Czech Republic. Despite sustaining a severe injury, Soucek managed to score in the team’s 1-1 draw against Poland on Saturday.

An Unfortunate Accident

During the match, Southampton defender Jan Bednarek accidentally kicked Soucek in the head. The West Ham star fell to the ground while contesting for the ball, and Bednarek’s leg swung out, making contact with Soucek’s forehead. The impact resulted in a deep gash, leaving Soucek bloodied and in need of immediate medical attention.

Despite the injury, Soucek demonstrated resilience and continued playing for the remainder of the match. The draw against Poland was crucial for the Czech Republic’s Euro 2024 qualification hopes. If they can avoid defeat against Moldova on Monday, their place in the tournament will be secured.

Unfortunately, Soucek’s West Ham teammate Vladimir Coufal was sent home along with two other players for violating team rules, leaving the Czech Republic with a depleted squad.

A Fighter’s Spirit

Later, Soucek proudly displayed the gruesome wound caused by Bednarek’s boot. The Czech national team shared an image of Soucek on their Instagram account, captioning it with the word ‘bojovnik,’ which means fighter.
