In the past two seasons, whether in Liverpool or the Dutch national team, Van Dijk has been the unshakable core of the team's defense. At the club, since January 2018, he has played in all 93 games of the Red Army in the Premier League, helping the team to achieve 72 victories while also scoring 10 goals. Among them, since September 2018, he has not missed a minute of the Premier League and is a veritable "iron man"!
Unfortunately, this "close contact" with Pickford is likely to become an important turning point in the Dutch career. This reckless tackle by England's national goal caused serious damage to Van Dijk's knee. Speaking bluntly, as Director Zhang Lu mentioned in the game commentary, "
As shown in the figure above, the full name of ACL is Anterior Cruciate Ligament, which is the anterior cruciate ligament, also known as the anterior cruciate ligament. It is located in the knee joint and connects the femur and tibia. Its main function is
The anterior cruciate ligament is generally not easily damaged. 78% of the anterior cruciate ligament injuries are non-contact. This disease is common in sports, such as rugby, basketball, football, skiing and other events.
Anterior cruciate ligament injury is mainly divided into three degrees: 1 degree is the tibia anteriorly 1~5 mm, 2nd degree anterior cruciate ligament injury is the tibia anterior 6-10 mm, if the tibia is anteriorly greater than 10 mm, it is called third degree Cruciate ligament injury. Anterior cruciate ligament injury on MRI is also divided into three grades. The first grade is intra-ligament injury without change in ligament length, and the second grade is intra-ligament injury with changes in ligament length.
前十字韧带损伤主要分为三度：1度是胫骨前部1〜5 mm，2度前十字韧带损伤是胫骨前部6-10 mm，如果胫骨前部大于10 mm，则称为三度十字韧带损伤。 MRI上前十字韧带损伤也分为三个等级。一级为韧带长度不变的韧带内损伤，第二级为韧带长度不变的韧带内损伤。
Liverpool officials did not disclose the specific recovery time of Van Dijk, but as far as the current situation is concerned, if he is really injured by the third-level ACL, then he has basically bid farewell to the rest of the season, and I am afraid that the European Cup next summer. It is difficult to come back and play for the Dutch team.
In fact, in addition to the physical impact, the trauma caused by a serious injury to the player's heart is also not to be ignored. Van Dyke himself issued a statement as soon as possible. The specific content is as follows:
Baggio may be the best role model for all athletes on this road to recovery. At the age of 17, he suffered all the torn cruciate ligaments and meniscus. He sewed 220 stitches during the operation, and it took nearly a year. Reluctantly overcame the trouble caused by this injury. Although Baggio still stood at the pinnacle of football in his later career, it still makes people regret and wonder how high he would stand without this serious injury.
The same example is the zebra prince Piero, before he was seriously injured, he was widely regarded as one of the most shining attackers in football at the time. Despite the treatment of American experts, Piero was able to return to the game. But after that, it was difficult for him to find himself who was comparable to Daluo.
In the Premier League, "Chinese Sun" Sun Jihai also suffered similar injuries in the match against Chelsea in 2004. But what is commendable is that after nine months of recovery, he played for Manchester City for three more seasons. In Manchester City's 1-2 defeat to Fulham, Sun Jihai's classic 1v4 rescue was completed after recovering from a serious injury.
