In the sport of soccer, the goalie is usually the last line of the defense and while some do their best to stop the ball, sometimes you just have to stop the man.

Check out the below video from the first week of group C play in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations as one goalie decided to stop the man by kicking him right in the chest.

Watch as Ethiopian goalie Jamel Tassew was forced to stop a breakaway attempt in the 35th minute from Zambia’s Chisamba Lungu with a swift kick:

Somehow, Tassew took the worst of the hit and needed to be taken off the field on a stretcher. By the way, Jamel got a red card for his effort as well.
