Dirk Kuyt Gets Head Stapled After Nasty Cut, Carries on Playing

Netherlands veteran Dirk Kuyt has been a valuable utility man for Louis van Gaal during this World Cup, and even in the third/fourth-place play-off showed exactly why.

Kuyt sustained a nasty cut in a challenge late in the first half, which was bleeding heavily. 

Rather than simply come off with precious little but pride at stake, Kuyt had his cut stapled closed on the touchline and returned to the match.
