German physio was injured treating a player

DURING Germany’s three goal win over Austria, physio Klaus Eder ran onto the pitch to treat a player and ended up needing treatment to two injuries himself.
Eder, who has worked for the German federation for 25 years, tore a muscle in his left leg as he went to tend to Marcel Schmelzer, causing him to fall over – and when he fell, he then broke a finger.
“I now have to put into practice what I always tell my patients,” the 60-year-old told the German federation’s website on Sunday. “Patience is important and you should not expect a lot of progress too soon.
“The way the players reacted was very comforting.
“Philipp Lahm brought me the ice pack, Mesut Ozil and Miroslav Klose held me and led me off the field.”
