DTotD: Brazilian footballer delivers brutal kick to opponent’s face in Peru

Dirty Tackle

A mere 13 minutes into Alianza Universidad's 1-0 win against Deportivo Municipal in a Peruvian second division match, the eventual winners were reduced to 10 men when Brazilian striker Willigton "Adao" Smith was sent off for planting a vicious kick to an opponent's face. After clearing the ball, Smith's foot just kept rising until it found the Deportivo player's kisser.

This prompted perhaps the greatest football commentary of all time (heard in the video above): "Y BOOM!" We can only hope the recipient of that kick did recover so we can feel OK about laughing at that.

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