Schumacher Takes Out Battiston

380 0

The West German goalkeeper, Schumacher, comes off his line and charges right into French defender Battiston in the 1982 World Cup. It looked like Schumacher wasn’t trying to even win the soccer ball but going directly for Battiston and trying to take him out. Amazingly, no penalty kick was given. Battiston went into a coma after being taken out by Schumacher but did recover.
