Did Luiz Felipe Scolari Just Kick Dani Alves in the Groin?

Sean SwabyUK Staff WriterJune 22, 2014

It's all fun and games until you take a Luiz Felipe Scolari boot to the groin. 

Dani Alves found that out the hard way. Or did he? 

Alves was engaging in a simple game of keepy-uppy with fellow defender David Luiz during a Brazil training session when coach Scolari walked by and appeared to innocently kick Alves where no man wants to be kicked. 

Fair play? Alves does a bit of play-acting in the aftermath, but when he pops back up he's smiling, suggesting that Scolari didn't actually hit his "target."
