Dirty Tackle

With the score 0-0 shortly before halftime in an Argentine Primera Division match on Saturday, Belgrano keeper Juan Carlos Olave stopped San Martin striker Claudio Riano at the top of the box by spearing him in the midsection with his boot. Olave was shown a yellow for his frowned upon technique, but San Martin eventually got their revenge by scoring twice in the final 16 minutes of the match to win 2-0.
