Montpellier confirmed themselves as legitimate Ligue 1 title contenders last weekend when they claimed a 2-2 draw against league leaders PSG, and for Parisian-based striker Nene the result was more painful than for most.
As they match ticked over into injury time, Nene raced off to the sidelines as his team won a late throw-in.
Moments before he trotted over the white line though, the PSG attacker turned his head as if somebody on the pitch was trying to get his attention. That head-turn arrived at a terrible time for the Brazilian, as unbeknown to him the ball-boy was swiftly going about his required duties.
Milli-seconds Nene reversed his head in the right direction only to get a face-full of leather in his kisser.
