Manchester United defender Eric Bailly was hauled off the pitch in Ivory Coast’s clash against Rwanda amid fears he had swallowed his tongue.
One of the centre-back’s team-mates had to open his mouth to check if he was not choking after Bailly had been involved in a nasty head collision.
Bailly, 24, was having a good game at Stade Félix Houphouët-Boigny as he doubled Ivory Coast’s lead against Rwanda in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
But the Red Devils defender’s afternoon turned sour after he was involved in a nasty head challenge late into the game.
His worried team-mates run towards Bailly to help him, with one opening his mouth to check if he had swallowed his tongue.
Fortunately, the United ace got back up on his feet, but had to be replaced by Ismael Traore as a precaution.
Bailly has been enduring a difficult season at Old Trafford as he has played in just 17 games for United this season.
