Home / Soccer Fans / Genk Defender Chris Mavinga Knocks Out Mehdi Carcela


This might be the best case for why you should never kick this high in this situation. Chris Mavinga was running after the ball along with Mehdi Carcela last night in the Belgian League. The ball took a high bounce, and he went to touch it on out of play. Instead he found Carcela’s face. It’s not terribly dirty, just kind of dangerous, either way Carcela came away from it with a broken nose and jaw.
Hope he recovers soon.

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+
