Home / International Soccer / Morales Strikes a Low Blow


So the President of Bolivia, has been called many things, but all we can say for a fact is he loves his football. Recently, he was playing in a match for his political party against the opposition party and suffered a bad tackle. Morales, 50, is a former Aymara llama herder and coca farmer. He’s also not known for indulging critics, let alone people who foul him. He walked up to Cartagena, indicated his wound, then unceremoniously kneed him in the groin.

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+
