Yeah I saw that story, scary moment. Good reaction by opposing players. That dude took a crazy blow from the keeper's knee.

Nikolai, there is a big debate in the soccer referee community on whether this GK should have been red-carded or not...

I don't think he should've been red carded. He came up clean for the ball as he has the right to do. I just think it was unfortunate collision. It happens.

Truth. I remember when Drogba was knocked out mid-air by a keeper challenging for a ball. Could've been a like threatening injury, but it was clearly not a foul, the keeper was doing exactly what he would be expected to and it caused an unfortunate collision.
