Brazil U23’s Anderson Talisca gets KO’d after scoring header v Paraguay [Video]

Brazil U23’s Anderson Talisca bravely took one for the team last night, as he got knocked clean out after scoring a towering header in their friendly with Paraguay U23.

Talisca rose highest to power home Brazil’s fourth goal, but he was caught with a stray elbow to the back of the head in the same instant, and was knocked out cold.

He was stretchered off the pitch and taken straight to hospital, and was released without any serious injury.
