Now here’s something you don’t see every day — the president of a nation participating in a full on soccer match. But you know what’s something you probably never see at all? The president of a nation kneeing someone in the balls during said soccer game. Yes, that actually happened in Bolivia and it could be the most unique nut shot video we’ve ever featured here at LBS.
Bolivian President Evo Morales decided to celebrate the opening of a new pitch in La Paz by participating in a “friendly” match between his ruling party and the opposing party. Easy to see where that could go wrong, huh? Check out the video of Bolivian President Evo Morales kneeing a player in the balls during a soccer game:
Ouuuuuuch. Apparently the guy Morales unloaded on, Daniel Gustavo Cartagena, committed a hard foul on the president just before the knee-to-testicle melee. Cartagena was sent off after the incident but Morales wasn’t given a red card. Surprise, surprise. Not only that, the president tried to have Cartagena arrested following the match but was convinced to drop it by the mayor of La Paz.
Talk about out of control. A guy can get kneed in the balls, receive a red card, and almost get arrested all in a span of a few hours? Consider Bolivia scratched from my list of countries to visit.
