Uzbekistan's Under 22s have produced two of the most outrageous moments of foul play you are ever likely to see in their 1-0 defeat to South Korea U22s.
The incidents occurred during the King’s Cup clash in Thailand, and really do need to be seen to be believed.
First, with 77 minutes on the clock and already trailing by the would-be winning, Uzbekistan's Masharipov goes up for a bouncing ball with his right foot dangerously high in the air.
Watch the incredible video below:
Rather than pulling out when seeing his opposite number going for a header, the player went studs-first into his opponents head. The South Korean youngster was left in a heap on the floor, and a red card followed.

Unbelievably, that wasn't the worst incident in the game, as with three minutes left on the clock, Shamshitdinov produced an unprovoked double punch on another South Korean player.
To his credit, he took the shots on the chin and, rather than falling down and rolling around in agony, stared down his opponent as teammates came sprinting across the pitch to remonstrate.
Second red card
The referee acted quickly in this instance, pulling the player away and showing a second red card. He had little choice but to give the player his marching orders.
It's worth noting that the event in Thailand is an invitational tournament - you can't imagine Uzbekistan will be invited back next time around.
