Kung Fu Keeper

Recife number one could be banned for life after horror attack

Kung Fu Keeper

A Brazilian goalkeeper is to be prosecuted for attempted murder after a hroor attack during an U19 match.

Sport Recife glove-wearer Gustavo violently kung fu-kicked Vasco da Gama's Elivelton in the neck and was unsurprisingly shown the door by his club shortly after.

The ref cancelled the match and Elivelton was taken to hospital but remarkably he has escaped without serious injury and he has already forgiven his attacker saying: "I just hope he no longer has such an attitude on the field in the future, whatever team he is playing for."

Gustavo could be banned from football for life for his action. Hollywood beckons.
