That Cleat To The Face Looks Like It Hurt (Video)

by: JamieD On  Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Below you will find footage of one soccer player whose injury didn’t require any acting.

After being tripped up during a free kick, Bjorn Vleminckx of the Dutch league’s N.E.C fell to the ground and was subsequently stomped on the face by the cleat of Excelsior’s Guyon Fernandez.  Soccer players are known to roll around on the floor for much less than that, so it should come as no surprise to hear that Vleminckx spent a fair amount of time wincing in pain on the pitch, before finally getting to his feet and revealing his cleat-imprinted face.

I’m not quite sure the “chick dig scars” theory works when your face looks like that.
