Bravery often comes with the price and that is why it is valued.
Another example comes from Sunday’s Tyne-Wear derby, where Newcastle defender Steven Taylor succesfuly prevented Steven Fletcher from scoring almost at the goal line, but immediately after colided with the post and got a nasty cut on his eye and cheek.
He was treated for around five minutes next to the pitch and Taylor eventually returned to the pitch at the joy of the home fans, who greeted the heroic performance from their defender. However, he wasn’t able to prevent the goal from Adam Johnson in the 90th minute, which was fourth victory in a row for Black cats.
Terrifying sound when Taylor hits the post with his face
