Flashback Football: England v Germany Charity Game Horror Tackle

Seeing Jaap Stam and Keano try their hardest to stay on their feet and not break any celebrities last night reminded me of my favorite charity game moment. Charity games are usually known for their lightness of tackle, but when you add England to Germany and then throw eccentric London mayor Boris Johnson into the mix, you’ve got a problem…

Best moment? About 12 seconds in when he walks away like an enforcer with Butch Wilkins only to grab his head in shock and turn back at the heinous tackle. As I recall he saw red for the challenge even though he got the ball. Got to love the man.
