As he lay flat on his back, Jano Ananidze realised the choking danger the centre-back was in and inserted his hand into Schar's move to prevent him from swallowing his tongue.

In spite of football's increased sensitivity to head injuries, the Newcastle United star played on after receiving treatment but admits the blow took its toll.

"It looks awful, I can't remember anything," he remarked to Swiss newspaper Blick after watching the footage back.

"I was out for a few seconds. My skull is still humming.

"And I've got neck ache and a bruise on my forehead.

"But it was worth it."
