2 Benfica players injured when bus hit with rocks
LISBON, Portugal (AP) — Two Benfica players have been hospitalized after rocks were thrown at the Portuguese club’s bus on a motorway following a 0-0 draw with Tondela. Benfica says German midfielder Julian Weigl and Serbian winger Andrija Zivkovic were struck by glass shrapnel when the bus was stoned on the A2 motorway on Thursday. The club says they were taken to Hospital da Luz “as a matter of precaution.” The team was returning from the Stadium of Light to its training complex. The club condemned the attack as a “criminal stoning” and vowed to work with authorities to identify those responsible.
