AjaxDaily shared video of the incident and reported the reaction of Nouri’s team-mates:

Nouri did not lose consciousness immediately, and the video showed he was breathing when medical staff made their way onto the pitch.

He received treatment on the pitch, and sheets were used to shield the view of fans and cameras.

The youngster came on in the second half of the game. He is widely regarded as one of the Netherlands’ top talents and has been a regular in Oranje’s youth setup.
