World Cup star rushed to hospital after horror accident on pitch

Iran goalkeeper Ali Beiranvand has been rushed to hospital after suffering a concussion against England.

Beiranvand was substituted early on after a brutal collision with a team-mate in the first half of the World Cup opener against England.

He suffered a bloody nose as he tried to claim a cross and subsequently received treatment from physios – before remarkably being allowed to play on.

However, moments later he fell to the turf and was unable to continue.

Beiranvand was then stretchered off the field of play and has now been revealed to have suffered a “serious concussion.”

Iran manager Carlos Quieroz also revealed the 30-year-old had sustained a broken nose from the incident.
