Roma Goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg Kicked in Head During Match

There was a scary moment in Serie A's big Saturday evening match between Inter and Roma at the San Siro in Milan when Roma Goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg was kicked in the head by Inter's Lucio. Although the kick to the head does not appear to be intentional, Stekelenburg clearly lost consciousness before hitting the ground and Lucio was awarded a yellow card. Stekelenburg ultimately regained consciousness in the locker room before being transported to the San Carlo Hospital for medical tests. Italian news agencies are reporting that Stekelenburg did not suffer any major injuries, though, it's not clear if the Italians consider a concussion to be a major injury or not.
