Written by Tony Ghaul

Saudi Arabia soccer star Yasser Al-Shahrani was knocked out cold after he was accidentally kneed in the face by his own goalkeeper. It was a knee that the UFC would be proud of.

It happened during Saudi Arabia’s surprise win over Lionel Messi and Argentina.

The 30-year-old defender hit the grass hard, and the medical team immediately rushed out onto the pitch to assist. Al-Shahrani came to and was able to give the crowd a thumb’s up to show he was alert.

Saudi Arabia was able to pull off the shocking 2-1 win over Messi’s squad. It’s a huge upset win for Saudi Arabia. They were ranked as one of the worst heading into the event in Qatar.
