I don’t know a lot about international soccer etiquette, but I’ve pieced together enough to tell you that’s Defender Cristiano Diaz of Newell’s Old Boys got his face stomped on by All Boys Carlos Soto like the dude was trying to kill Mr. Gone’s disembodied head during Monday’s 1-1 draw.
Amazingly, Diaz ignored the stretcher they brought out to cart him to the crushed skull hospital and played the full 90 minutes. I feel uncomfortable standing in the shoe section at Dick’s, I can’t imagine what it’d be like to take a soccer cleat with 150-ish pounds of guy in it to the dome. They would’ve had to scrape me off the grass with a spatula.
