Lille Keeper Mickael Landreau Knees Bordeaux’s Ben Khalfallah In The Face (Video)

At this time last season it appeared as though soccer was experiencing an epidemic of players delivering flying kung-fu kicks on their opponents, however, it feels as though it has been quite a while since we last saw a footballer execute a one of these dangerous challenges.  Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about the vicious flying knee, which made its return during yesterday’s Ligue 1 action in France, as Bordeaux midfielder Ben Khalfallah was on the receiving end of a knee from Lille goalkeeper Mickael Landreau.

Landreau’s careless challenge earned him a yellow card and gave Bordeaux a penalty kick, but Khalfallah’s sacrifice would be all for naught, as his team would miss the kick and settle for a 1-1 draw.

Here is a look at the flying knee to the face.
