# \@footnotetext error for special characters

I have a link 3NT to external website

I defined it in markdown like below

link [3NT](http://www.xinruibridge.com/deallog/DealLog.html?bidlog=1C,P,1S,P%3B1N,P,3N,P%3BP,P&playlog=W:3D,JD,5D,7D%3BN:2S,4S,6S,KS%3BW:AD,6D,TD,9D%3BW:5S,3S,TS,7S%3BE:6H,5H,8H,QH%3BN:KH,2H,TH,3H%3BN:QD,JH,KD,8D%3BS:AH,4D,9S,9H%3BS:AC,2C,4C,8C%3BS:JC,7C,9C,7H%3BS:3C,5C,TC,4H%3BN:KC,JS,6C,QC%3BN:QS,AS,8S,2D%3B&deal=876.AT5.K97.AJ63%20K5.83.A8432.Q752%20Q932.KQ.QJ6.KT94%20AJT4.J97642.T5.8&vul=All&dealer=S&contract=3N&declarer=S&wintrick=9&score=600&str=%E5%9B%A2%E4%BD%93%E8%B5%9B%20%E7%AC%AC7%E8%BD%AE%20%E7%89%8C%E5%8F%B7%207/12&dealid=349432067&pbnid=65731689&from=singlemessage&isappinstalled=0)


Which in my application, it will generate related LaTex with footnote below, it complains File ended while scanning use of \@footnotetext.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\begin{document}

\end{document}


any suggestion to make it working (looks like %3B in url had issue)
