Dirty Tackle

Vaslui and Bulgaria defender Zhivko Milanov required some emergency dentistry after getting kicked in the mouth by Cluj Cadu during a Romanian league match on Monday. Milanov bent down to try and head away a ball in the center circle shortly before halftime, but he did it was Cadu lunged with a hugh boot, causing the mouth to foot collision.

According to Reuters, Milanov had two teeth knocked out by the kick and then three more removed at the hospital after he was stretchered off. Cadu, meanwhile, was shown a red card and hopefully spent the rest of the day purchasing a set of dentures for Milanov.

After the match, Vaslui coach Viorel Hizo described Cadu's kick as "a crime."
