Shovies & Ouchies: Christian Fischer & Fernando Torres

Getting injured on the job is never fun. In some cases, a minor bump, scratch or hanged nail can turn into a disaster of epic proportions.

Exhibit A: in this video of the Benfica v Fortuna Dusseldorf “friendly” that was played in Germany over the weekend, Benfica’s Luisão takes aim, referee Christian Fischer assumes the position and the rest of players crowd around, failing to supervise. We’ve checked the resulting photographic evidence and can confirm: Fischer did not enjoy himself this past Saturday.

Exhibit B: same goes for Fernando Torres’ precious freckles, which were recklessly put in harm’s way when Yaya Toure’s boot met his fair skinned face at some point during the Community Shield clash.

We’d like to assume that the aggressors in each scenario are being dealt appropriate punishments. As in, they’re being forced to buy discount shoes and wear Elen’s Hello Kitty coat as we type this.

    Saw Fernando get hit. Was amazed that he didn't have a bloody nose or something. O.o

    It would seem Nando's face escaped harm:…

    Though his eyebrows have yet to escape his hairdresser's dye brush. What a shame.
