John Terry Delivers A Big Boot To The Face Of Luke Varney (Video)

by: JamieD On  Tuesday, July 19, 2011

One thing that makes John Terry such a great defender is his willingness to do whatever it takes to keep the ball out of his own goal.  Sometimes that may entail taking a shot from the opposing team in the midsection or off the face in an attempt to block it from reaching his goal.  Other times it means kicking an opponent in the face to prevent him from having an easy tap-in goal during a friendly match.

We recently saw the latter transpire during a friendly against Portsmouth.  Looking to preserve Chelsea’s 1-0 lead, Terry delivered a vicious boot to the face of Luke Varney, preventing him from capitalizing on a terrible back-header by one of his teammates.

As much as I’d like to applaud the never-say-die effort from Terry during this friendly, I can’t help but think that the game would be a lot better off without the flying kicks to the head.
