Per Mertesacker takes a Tevez shot to the face

Germany dominated Argentina 4-0 in its quarterfinal match, but the Argentines did get one over on their opponents in the form of a Carlos Tevez blast to Per Mertesacker's face. Mertesacker just might be speaking French to his bathtub tonight after taking that brain-scrambler from point-blank range. I'm sure he'll be very pleased to hear a few days from now that Germany won the game, though.

I don't care how many languages you can speak or how religiously you attend those Tuesday night wine tastings, seeing someone take a ball to the face is never not funny. It's science.
