Dirty Tackle - World Soccer

Yeah, yeah, yeah -- Zinedine Zidane, Marco Materazzi. Whatever. Villarreal's Borja Valero executed a headbutt that was arguably even more awesome in his side's 3-0 Champions League playoff win over Odense on Tuesday. When Andreas Johansson shoved Valero to the ground and then kicked him in the back of the head, Valero reacted like an angry bull and rammed his head right into Johansson's chest, launching the Odense midfielder off the ground.

As per usual with headbutts to the chest, Valero was sent off with a straight red, while Johansson was given a yellow. And this was all just a mere five minutes after Odense's Bashkim Kadrii was booked a second time and sent off himself for something that wasn't nearly as funny looking as this.
