The last few weeks before the 2022 FIFA World Cup and the tournament itself was a bit unkind to many goalkeepers. Besides football, it is also possible to cricket live match tonight through the 1xBet online betting platform.
During those weeks many goalkeepers who were expected to participate or actually were part of the 2022 FIFA World Cup suffered serious injuries. Some of those names were:
- Maxime Crépeau;
- Alireza Beiranvand;
- and Bartłomiej Drągowski.
Through the 1xBet platform it is possible to bet on cricket and football live matches tonight and at any moment during the day. The latter’s case was particularly dramatic. He was expected to be the second goalkeeper in the Polish national squad during the 2022 FIFA World Cup behind Wojciech Szczęsny.
An unfortunate situation
On the 13th of November 2022 Hellas Verona and Spezia played a Serie A match. Drągowski was the starting goalkeeper for the latter team. Punters may want to make live cricket game betting or football wagering through 1xBet, where the Serie A is also included.
That was the last match for the Polish goalkeeper before joining his teammates in Qatar. He had already been selected by coach Czesław Michniewicz.
Yet, things came crashing down for Bartłomiej Drągowski in the 37th minute of the first half. He ran from the penalty in order to grab a ball that was quickly being chased by Verona’s attacker Kevin Lasagna. Sadly for the keeper, his right foot became stuck in the grass while sliding. Fans can make live betting on football or cricket games through 1xBet, where the best competitions are featured.
A painful moment
Drągowski received a catastrophic diagnosis. Although he didn’t break any bones, his right ankle was completely dislocated. Obviously, this immediately meant that he was out of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. For wagering on other great matches from this competition, the live stream football India on 1xBet can be particularly useful.
The Polish goalkeeper was replaced by Jeroen Zoet. Eventually, Spezia won 2-1 with goals from Simone Verdi and M’Bala Nzola. Yet, probably this was little consolation for the talented keeper, who saw how his World Cup dream vanished in just a second.
Obviously, Czesław Michniewicz also needed to make adjustments. He called Copenhagen goalkeeper Kamil Grabara to take Drągowski’s place in the competition celebrated in Qatar. The live football streams on 1xBet India have excellent quality, and they can be used to wager on major football tournaments as well.
