When Layvin Kurzawa took a thunderous cleat to the chest in the 83rd minute of Monaco’s Ligue 1 match against Reims, it looked like he might not be able to continue.
But after a minute of agony — and watching offending Reims player Aissa Mandi being sent off — Kurzawa soldiered on, and boy, did it pay off.
On what would be the final kick of the match, the 21-year-old scored the game-winner, securing a crucial three points in the race for the Ligue 1 title.
The lesson here: Don’t mess with Layvin Kurzawa.
