did anyone see the injury? I only saw a picture and I'm not going to post it ... I don't think he's gonna walk again normally. I didn't see the tackle but theres no place in the game for dirty tackles like that.

OMG just seen pics of that tackle, and it looks brutal. Eduardo's boot actually came off as Taylor made connection. The worse thing is Taylor was smiling after getting up from the tackle, whilst Eduardo was screaming in pain. Not sure whether I should post the link or not...

Feel sorry for Eduardo, hope he recovers, his season is over for now.

Arsenal striker Eduardo underwent surgery for a double compound fracture of his leg on Saturday after suffering a horrific injury against Birmingham.

The Croatia international will miss the rest of the season and Euro 2008, and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said he fears a "much longer" absence.

Croatia manager Slaven Bilic added: "This is horrible. The fact he won't play at the Euros is less important.

"Most important is he recovers as soon as possible and resumes his career."
