Isn’t the FA Cup third round just magical?
Viewers of BBC 1 were blessed with live coverage of West Ham’s trip to League One’s Shrewsbury this afternoon.
And wouldn’t you know it? The two teams played out a stale 0-0.
Highlights include Joe Hart wearing a West Ham fan’s hat to shield his eyes from the midlands sun…
And poor Josh Cullen unknowingly volunteering for some experimental dentistry midway through the second half.
West Ham’s 21-year-old midfielder lost a tooth when he was kicked in the face while competing for a loose ball…
Not the peaceful Sunday afternoon most of us would like.
Cullen showed admirable courage in his determination to carry on and finish the game.
He was taken directly to hospital after the final whistle for treatment.
The West Ham physio was seen picking the loose tooth out of the turf before preserving it in milk, according to the BBC’s commentary.
The whole thing left us wondering… would you rather watch that game again or have a tooth kicked out of your mouth?
It’s tough one…
