Soccer Player Requires 10 Stitches After Getting Kicked in the Crotch (VIDEO)


Well, first, some context: This man is Albacete footballer Mariano Bittolo. He was the unfortunate recipient of a swift kick to the junk, and in this particular instance, blood was drawn.

With that, let’s get to the clip, which isn’t graphic, but does feature a fair amount of human suffering nonetheless.

In the video’s title, you might not know what “10 puntos de sutura” means, but it translates to “10 stitches.” Yup, not a great scene for anyone.

I guess, in the grand scheme of things, that’s not such a damning outcome, but that doesn’t mean it was fun for poor Mariano to endure. And in front of a global stage at this point, no less.
