Watch A Soccer Player Kick A Ball Into His Own Face While Trying To Look Cool
Soccer players taking rogue balls (or flying kung-fu kicks, depending on the occasion) to the face is nothing out of the ordinary. But when the pain-inducing miscue is their own doing, then, well, it's just great.
Such was the case during today's friendly between Chelsea and Kitchee SC. With both teams scrambling in front of Kitchee's goal, Yossi Benayoun's overhead-attempt-gone-awry sent the ball straight back into his own noggin. Watch below:
All's well that ends well, though, as Benayoun's self-inflicted hit didn't appear to leave any lingering effects, with Chelsea trouncing the Hong Kong sports club 4-0 to advance to the final of the Barclays Asia Cup.
