WATCH: Jeff Hendrick attempts to score past Denmark despite clear injury to teammate

Jeff Hendrick was looking to score past the Leicester City 'keeper but finished the attack with egg on his face

It's not always clear to see exactly what's going on throughout a ninety minute football match but things certainly looked bad for Burnley midfielder Jeff Hendrick when he disregarded injured teammate Harry Arter. Denmark were playing the ball along the back but slowed their play when they saw that the Cardiff City loanee was injured, with it seeming like the Danes would kick the ball out of play in order for Arter to get treatment from the Republic of Ireland team.

Instead of showing the same level of consideration for his teammate, Burnley midfielder Jeff Hendrick took the ball from the Denmark defence, running to the opposition goal, and shooting. To make matters worse, he missed the goal and had to face the wrath of the whole Denmark national team, who were furious with his decision to not check on his own teammate.
