During the second half of Israel's friendly against Hungary on Wednesday, Israel keeper Dudu Aouate played a game of chicken against Hungary striker Adam Szalai and nobody won. Aouate decided to be proactive with a long ball that could've set Szalai up for a one-v-one and sprinted to the edge of the box to head it away. As soon as he did that, he collided with Szalai, sending him crashing down on face while Szalai took a knee to the throat/chest.
After a bit of treatment, both players were thankfully okay to continue on. Israel found an equalizer in the 80th minute and the match ended 1-1.
This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
