Porto’s Danilo Knocked Unconscious By His Own Keeper (Video)
FC Porto beat FC Basel 4-0 to advance to the quarterfinal round of the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday. But even with a strong effort and a lopsided score, the victory still had its ugly moments for the Portuguese club.
Specifically, we’re talking about the scene that unfolded during the 17th minute of the match, when 23-year-old Porto defender Danilo was knocked unconscious by his own keeper while both of them were chasing down a long ball just outside the Porto box.
