VIDEO: Nacer Chadli RISES to volley goal for Spurs, Bafetimbi Gomis collapses soon after

Happiness turned into sadness early on at the Tottenham/Swansea game. Nacer Chadli got some height as he rose up and kicked the cross in right in the middle of the box. He doesn’t even move his foot to give the ball any power. He just let the ball get to his foot and made contact. It was an absolute stunner.

After the goal, Bafetimbi Gomis collapsed as they were about to kick off. He was operated for about five minutes and left on a stretcher having to receive oxygen through a mask. He is awake and alert but will go to the hospital. Thoughts are with Gomis.
