Birmingham 2-2 Arsenal Highlights

James McFadden salvaged a point for Birmingham with an injury-time penalty but the game was overshadowed by a horrific injury to Arsenal’s Eduardo.

The Croatian suffered a broken leg in the third minute after a tackle by Martin Taylor, who was sent off.

McFadden gave Blues the lead with a 20-yard free-kick before Theo Walcott equalised, poking in from close range.

Walcott made it 2-1 with a mazy run and shot before McFadden equalised after Gael Clichy fouled Stuart Parnaby.

It was a dramatic end to an incident-packed match that began with a sickening injury to Croatia international Eduardo which shocked players and officials in the immediate vicinity.

Referee Mike Dean summoned Arsenal physio Gary Lewin and the St John’s Ambulance to attend to the striker and issued a straight red to Taylor.

The on-pitch treatment for the 24-year-old lasted seven minutes before he was given oxygen, stretchered off and rushed to hospital in Birmingham.
