Here Is What Soccer Would Look Like If It Were A Contact Sport (Video)
If soccer were a contact sport, we would probably see a lot more flying elbows like the one delivered by ADO Den Haag’s Ahmed Ammi on Feyenoord’s Ryo Miyaichi. Fact of the matter is, it is not a contact sport, which makes this elbow to the face unacceptable and clearly deserving of a red card.
Oddly enough, the referee didn’t feel the same way, giving Ammi only a yellow for his cheap shot. I guess he was saving his red cards for those dreaded flying kung-fu kicks.
