WATCH: Scottish footballer dislocates kneecap, hammers it back in, continues playing

Jane O’Toole shows a level of toughness majority of us have never needed to contemplate and then there is Neymar

Scottish football player Jane O’Toole should hands down be given an award for ‘the toughest player’ as the St Mirren Women’s captain suffered a horrendous injury by dislocating her kneecap on the pitch, decided to hammer it back in and kept playing on the field.

The injury happened right after the second half against Inverness where her side was losing 6-0 in the Scottish Cup.

O’Toole was going for a 50-50 interception, got hit on the ground where her kneecap moved from her usual position, and she managed to punch it back into the place.

Instead of seeking for medical attention and leaving the game, she decided to not quit and get back on the field to play the remainder of 40 minutes, which St Mirren lost 7-0. The captain was treated by the medical staff and has been given the green signal following her scary injury.

Everybody would have forgiven her to leave the pitch given the circumstances but the captain refused and shows a level of toughness majority of us have never needed to contemplate. And then there is Neymar.
