Referee Takes Out Jermaine Jones in USA vs. Germany World Cup Clash

Will TideySenior Manager, GlobalJune 26, 2014

Jermaine Jones was making a run into the Germany box. His eyes were on the ball. He was ready to make an impact for Team USA at the World Cup.

And then referee Ravshan Irmatov intervened, knocking Jones to the ground with a strong shoulder.

It was accidental, of course, but still hilarious.
