Eintracht Frankfurt captain Sebastian Rode shows off horror scar after being kicked in head during win over Rangers

EINTRACHT FRANKFURT captain Sebastian Rode has shown off his horror war scar from last night's Europa League triumph over Rangers.

The 31-year-old was caught in the head by Rangers' John Lundstram's boot in the first half.




Rode went down in serious pain and had blood pouring from his head.

The tough tackling midfielder was patched up by medics and saw the game out until full-time with the game tied up at 1-1.

Kristijan Jakic then came on in his place for extra-time.

Frankfurt won the nail biting penalty shootout 5-4, with all of their players holding their nerve.

Rafael Santos Borre, who scored the equaliser to cancel out Joe Aribo's opener, netted the winning spot-kick.

But captain Rode was left with more than just the Europa League trophy after the final.

Rode needed stitches, which he showed off to his Twitter followers.

He tweeted: "The main thing is to get the thing [trophy]!!! Everything else doesn't matter."
