In the 69th minute of Montreal's 2-0 win over Philadelphia on Saturday night, Philly midfielder Antoine Hoppenot decided to toss Montreal defender Nelson Rivas on the ground. This was a mistake. Rivas then got up and walked his forehead into Hoppenot's face, prompting the Frenchman to fall over.
Rivas was shown a red card for the headbutt and the Union's Jack McInerney was also showen a red for his involvement in the ensuing scuffle. But the best part of this whole incident was Freddy Adu immediately standing up to the larger Rivas. Respect The Adu!
This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
