This intense video shows Barcelona’s goalkeepr, Victor Valdes, shin slapping Copenhagan forward N’Doye Dame in the face. Go ahead, take your time and watch this video really carefully. You can clearly see Dame’s face and Valdes’ shin meet with a disturbing force. I’m sure Dame hopes they never meet again, too.
What makes this situation even more sweet for Valdes is that he wasn’t even called for the karate kick to the face. I always thought referees protect the keepers a bit too much, but that’s just my opinion. Even though Valdes got away with an awesome hit, Barcelona couldn’t pull out the win. The teams tied 1-1.
