Luiz Adriano breaks for Shakhtar Donetsk and sprints towards goal as every forward would do, as he looks to get in on goal and score for his team. Oleksandr Chyzhov of FC Illychivets isn’t having any of that, but rather than put in a cynical trip or a dodgy tackly, Oleksandr Chyzhov decides the best course of action is to stick out his right arm and pole axe him.
As Adriano collapses to the floor, Oleksandr Chyzhov then jumps up and down signalling for help from the refree and bench as Adriano is knocked out. A quick thinking FC Illychivets player runs over to check whether his tongue isn’t being swallowed whilst the refree hovers over with a yellow card.
Yes thats right folks – Oleksandr Chyzhov got just a yellow card for this ridiculous and dangerous challenge!
Shakhtar went on to with the game three nil with goals from Gladkiy, Taison and Teuxeira whilst also having Rakitskiy sent off in the 83rd minute.
