Napoli forward Dries Mertens has avoided a freak shoulder injury – from taking a free kick.
Calciomercato.com reports Mertens dislocated his shoulder as he went up for the set-piece during Belgium’s 4-0 victory over Scotland last week.
“It’s never happened to me before! My shoulder dislocated when I went to take a free kick,” he told his country’s Press.
