Match abandoned after linesman hit in head with register roll

Dirty Tackle

Just after the start of the second half in the Copa Sudamericana match between Nacional and Universidad de Chile, a linesman was hit in the head with a streamer/cash register roll thrown from the stands. The linesman was reportedly carried off a stretcher and the match was abandoned.

Goals in the 11th and 12th minutes had the home side, Nacional, trailing 2-0 at the time of the headshot, so it was most likely the work of a disgruntled fan. A disgruntled fan with an impressively accurate throwing arm.
