Boaz Myhill injures himself
Boaz Myhill is a professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for the West Bromwich Albion of the Premier League Club. He is the stand-by goalie of the team since April 2016. The no. 1 goalkeeper of Albion Ben Foster had suffered a knee injury which he sustained while playing with his son. Hence Boaz was called in to play against the Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. However, on 23 October 2017 while playing Boaz too injured his leg. The third choice Alex Palmer started to warm up thinking that he would be called in now.
However, Boaz said that he would continue to play in spite of the injury. He said:
“It’s an absolute joy to play Premier League football and having been out of it for 18 months I was never going to come off.”
Boaz had done a superb replacement job for Ben Foster when he was laid off due to a knee injury for 10 months in 2015-2016. Boaz said:
“Now I want to keep Ben out of the team. We’ve got a great relationship and he will understand that.”
“We all know what a great keeper he is but it’s my job to stop him playing and that’s what I’ll try to do.”
Boaz did not know what type of injury he had suffered this time. But he was determined to stay on and not get pushed off from the game. He was eager to do a comeback on the next game on 28 October 2017.
