Javier Mascherano Tore His Anus Open During The Argentina/Holland Game

Mascherano’s amazing tackle on Robben came at a price.

If you remember near the end of the semi final between the Netherlands and Argentina, Javier Mascherano made an amazing tackle to deny Arjen Robben the match-winning goal. Well, turns out he tore his butt hole wide open in the process.

Translated from ESPN Brazil:

I thought I had slipped, I thought I wouldn’t make it, but I tore my anus on that move, the pain…it was terrible. I do not want to be rude… I tore my anus in that play.




What an absolute warrior, and now he’s got the scars to prove it. Might not be anywhere near as bad as Neymar’s injury but still, can’t have been too pleasant.
