DTotD: U-17 goalkeeper nearly puts his foot through opponent’s midsection

Dirty Tackle

According to 101 Great Goals, this video comes from a U-17 friendly between French sides AS Villaret and SOM, but the moment of impact feels like it happened to you. After receiving a backpass, the goalkeeper tries to get the ball around an opponent in the box, but it gets away from him and a second attacker beats him to it. So, the goalkeeper neutralizes the threat and liquifies his opponent's intestines by delivering a flying boot to his midsection with the force of a car crash.

We don't know if the victim survived that kick, but if he did, he will be giving birth to the goalkeeper's boot in about nine months.

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