DTotD: America-MG keeper delivers flying boot to striker’s chin, gets sent off

Dirty Tackle

Early in the second half of a Brazilian second division match between America Mineiro and Bragantino, America goalkeeper Neneca did everything he could to keep to score at 0-0 by collecting the ball and then delivering a flying kick to an opposing striker's face. Except that backfired and he was sent off.

Neneca was shown a straight red and a penalty was awarded for the kick that laid out Diego Barboza, who later scored as Bragantino won 2-0.

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