In France's friendly against the Netherlands, Patrice Evra's face wasn't treated very nice by Dutch midfielder Quincy Promes' boot. Promes stupidly attempted to kick a ball that Evra was heading away, resulting in him scraping his studs across Evra's face, coming dangerously close to his eyeball.

Somehow, Promes was not booked for the offense and, even more amazingly, Evra can still see.

This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
