DTotD: Samuel Eto’o kicks opponent in the face

Samuel Eto'o scored his second goal for his high-paying employers at Anzhi in a 2-1 win over Volga Nizhny Novgorod at home on Saturday. But goals and gold aren't all he's struck in Russia -- he also struck an opponent's face with his boot.

Of course, Eto'o didn't mean to do this, but when you put your boot up high at the same time your opponent leans his head in, it can happen. Samuel was concerned about what happened, so he immediately called for the physios to come out and when he saw the Volga player's face was covered in blood, he called a little more emphatically.

At least Samuel has plenty of money to buy the guy a new nose.
