A similar situation occurred in the Kazakh Football League, to the one suffered by Danish star Christian Eriksen in his country’s match against Finland, on Saturday, “in Euro 2020”.
What an obsession? In the first league of Kazakhstan today during the match, the player … fainted 😨
Thank God, the defender of the Kairat-Zhastar team Lev Kurgin has already come to his senses. And we wish him Scandinavian fortitude too! 💪💪💪📽️kazfootball pic.twitter.com/Ed5fUcJXE1
