AS Roma goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg was hospitalized after getting kicked in the head by Inter Milan's Lucio during a scoreless Serie A draw today.

[He] had lost consciousness for a period, as only 15 minutes into the match he received a blow to the [head] in a challenge with the centre-back as they both collided while going for a 50-50 ball.

However, the news channel has since reported that he has woken up and is communicating once more. Stekelenburg underwent a CAT scan at the hospital shortly after being admitted and the signs seem to be encouraging. [Goal.com]
