Video: This compilation of the worst tackles of the season from Argentina is brilliant

If there’s one thing those Argentines like, it’s a good meaty challenge

Judging by this compilation, you can safely describe the Argentine league as ‘physical’, and they definitely don’t look to be shirking away from some hefty challenges.

From high feet to karate kicks and two footed lunges, there’s not stone left unturned in their quest to win the ball back by any means. We’ll be tuning in when the season starts up again anyway…

If you’re anything like the lads in the JOE office, then your reactions to watching it should have sounded a bit like Homer and Bart watching When Buildings Collapse.
