Chelsea vs. Liverpool: Carling Cup, December 19, 2007
I have not posted a football (soccer) article in quite awhile, and for the sake of mixing things up, here is a new one. I have previously discussed an idea for a video game which fuses martial arts and soccer. Sadly, I am not a computer programmer. Please look at the clip from the 1:06 mark on at least, for a two-footed slide tackle with studs showing. This led to a near instant red card. Was Liverpool striker Peter Crouch secretly auditioning for a role in a martial arts film in the off season? I must admit I was a little shocked when I first saw the clip on television.
