Footballer Apparently Kicks Opponent in Head in N. Ireland-Mexico Milk Cup Brawl

BR-UK StaffFeatured Columnist IVJuly 31, 2014

An under-19 international between Northern Ireland and Mexico descended into chaos on Wednesday, as multiple brawls broke out on the pitch and one footballer seemingly delivered a vicious kick to the head.

The Milk Cup match saw a total of four red cards, with three handed out during the above fight. As you can see, one Mexican player sought out a Northern Irish opponent and forcefully kicked him. While the angle isn't perfect, it appears he was targeting the player's head

A second brawl broke out minutes from full time, and the referee opted to call the match with Northern Ireland leading 2-1 rather than trying to resume play.
