Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dyck suffered a finger injury that forced him to return to play in the World Cup qualifiers for the Netherlands.
The 30-year-old center-back, who recently returned from a long injury due to an ACL injury, walked two minutes into the second half to see his finger during a away match against Norway.
He was quickly returned by his healers and was able to return to action.
The terrible incident did not affect Van Dyk’s performance as he and his Dutch teammates did not score a goal in the second half.
But the Netherlands had to settle for one point after a 1-1 draw with Norway.
Borussia Dortmund striker Earling Holland took the lead for the home side in the 20th minute when he escaped Van Dick’s grip to close the gap.
But the Dutch equalized 16 minutes later when Van Dyk’s former Liverpool teammate Giorgione Vijnaldum knocked Dewey Klassin home.
The result leaves Norway and the Netherlands at seven points after four qualifying games, one point behind Group G leaders Turkey.

“Obviously, I’ve played and the first one was very emotional and very tough for a lot of reasons.
“Imagine for a second you were transposed into the karmic driven world of Earl.
