Estonian game halted by assault of a challenge

World of Sport

Rakvere Tarvas' 3-1 win over Puuma in the second tier of Estonian football was punctuated by an astonishing assault of a challenge from Puuma's Yaroslav Dimitriev.

The Russian forward, irritated to have lost the ball, crunched into his opposite number with a savage kick to the victim's gut.

Unsurprisingly he was given a straight red card, but not before he had managed to belt the loose football straight into his prostrate victim's midriff.

If there's a been a rougher challenge in Europe in recent weekends, we've not seen it.
