When South Korea took on Uzbekistan in the under-22 soccer category, they had no idea of the violence that awaited them.
A video of a match between the two nation’s U-22 teams has gone viral and has more resemblance to a martial arts movie than soccer!
The video of the match during the usually friendly King’s Cup tournament shows a Uzbekistani player throwing a series of punches at a young Korean player in response to a tackle, as well as another Uzbekistan teammate going in for a flying kung-fu-style kick against another Korean player. Red cards were dished out for both offenses.
In what turned out be an extremely violent game of soccer, the Uzbekistan team came out with one victory: being crowned the world’s most violent soccer team. “Uzbekistan under-22s prove themselves to be football’s most violent team,” said Britain’s The Mirror newspaper.
