Another day, another kick to the face. This time, defender Bruno Perone of Brazilian Serie B side Icasa went for a head-high ball with a flying kick, turning his foot into a battering ram that connected with the face of Oeste player Jheymy.
Perone was shown a red card and the unconscious victim was loaded into an ambulance an taken to a hospital.
Once there, Jheymy was treated for four facial fractures and required stitches for a large gash on his cheek. Here's what his face looked like after getting patched up:

Oeste's team doctor told Ole that they will operate once the swelling goes down and that Jheymy could return to the pitch in about two months (with a protective mask). Ole also reports that Oeste will ask that Bruno Perone be banned for as long as it takes Jheymy to recover.
