Home / International Soccer / Unconscious Belgian Amateur Sent Off for Diving…(Video)


While it looks all that serious in the video below, this Belgian amateur was left with three displaced vertebrae and a major concussion following a “clash of heads” style tackle in front of the opposition goal. Unfortunately, the referee inexplicably decided the player in question had dived and was faking, giving him a red card as he lay prostrate on a stretcher. While it has to be said players are often stretchered off and then miraculously rise from the pitch, its probably best to check if someone is awake, before sending them off.

I've played soccer since I could walk thanks to my father and love keeping up on all the latest gear and gab. I'm in my twenties, and I'm lucky enough to have found work in search marketing for a leading soccer retailer after completing my M.A. at Georgetown in 2008. My team is Liverpool, and national side is Ireland, but I've also got a passion for GAA and a number of sports. Feel free to give me a shout on Google+
