Ouch! A linesman gets KO’ed by a double sliding tackle (Toronto FC – FC Dallas)

MLS pre-season is in high gear, and Thursday night brought together Toronto FC and FC Dallas in the (superbly American sounding competition) Disney Pro Soccer Classic.

Toronto won 3-0, but one linesman probably didn’t give a fig about the final result after getting clattered three minutes from time.

As Dallas attacked down the right hand side, parellel with the lino, a Toronto defender and a Dallas forward both slid for possession and ended up KO’ing the official. As the commentator reported, it was an “ugly collision.”
