Home / Soccer Players / Independiente’s Julián Velázquez Slide Tackles Goal Post…Hurts Groin…Leaves in Tears


As a rule, its never a good idea to slide towards the goal with your legs spread apart, Julián Velázquez of Argentinian club side Independiente remind us why last weekend. Skip the video ahead to right around the 1:00 minute mark to see the incident. Frankly, I’m not sure how he stayed conscious.

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+
