did no media ask them about this after the match? If something like this would have happened in any sport in the US reporters would be all over both of them in the post-game. Is there no q&a with the players following the match?
I did for about 15 years. Spent time coaching and reffing. Now I'm a dad and go to school and work full time so I don't have time to be involved but still watch when I can (which is difficult here in the US). While playing I dislocated my shoulder, broke several fingers and my nose (Not to mention literally countless cuts, bruises, strains and sprains) and did not leave or miss a match due to injury once in my career. What's your point?
