Soccer Ball Explodes Following Shot From Bayern Munich’s Daniel Van Buyten (Video)

soccer ball explodesMany soccer pundits will tell you that Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo has one of the hardest shots in soccer at the moment, but Bayern Munich’s Daniel Van Buyten may have something to say about that following this weekend’s Bundesliga match against FC Koln.

Play had to be stopped following a Bayern free kick, as Van Buyten’s shot ricocheted off the wall, causing the ball’s inner lining to burst through the outer layer of leather.  The broken ball would turn into a rather cool souvenir soon after, as it was kicked into the stands and replaced by a new ball.

Here is a look at the incident.
