Nuno Pinto Delivers A No-Look Crotch Kick (Video)
Many people would chose to classify soccer as a sport played by sissies who flop and dive all over the place, but that is not always the case. Sometimes the diving is justifiable. After all, when was the last time a kick to the groin didn’t induce some sort of painful cry?
During a Portuguese league match between FC Porto and CD Nacional, tempers flared somewhat when Porto’s Jorge Fucile and Nacional’s Nuno Pinto got tangled up while fighting for a ball near the Nacional goal. Following the whistle, Pinto proceeded to deliver a no-look kick which landed between the legs of Fucile, knocking him to the ground as he wailed in agony.
It was one of the few times a Nacional player would actually get the opportunity to get their foot on the balls ball, as they were defeated by a score of 4-0. However, after watching the replay I think it is safe to say that Pinto did make his shot count when given the opportunity.
