VIDEO: Broken Arm From Soccer Shot On Goal

And you thought soccer was not a sport for tough guys.  Try having your arm broken as a result of your teammates shot at the goal.

That’s what happened for Nigeria's Ogenyi Onazi’s when his shot was blocked a teammate and then realized that he just broke his mate's arm in the process. 

During Nigeria’s match against Argentina, Onazi dribbled the ball to within 10 yards of the box and wound up for a long-range shot on goal. The ball shot into the arm of striker Michael Babatunde, who just so happened to be right in the line of fire breaking his arm in the process.

Babatunde obviously was in a ton of pain and immediately fell to the ground which forced him from the field immediately.

The 21-year-old will have surgery on his arm and is sidelined for the rest of the World Cup.
