Video: Horrific tackle is so horrific, you may not want to see it

Spanish footballers are world renowned for their technique and skill. Ruben Rayos, a Spaniard who plays for Israeli club Maccabi Haifa, will forever be renowned for one of the most vicious challenges ever seen on a football pitch.

Here's the scene. Maccabi Haifa were playing Bnei Yehuda in a league match in Israel. It was 2-1 to Bnei Yehuda when this happened. Their midfielder Rafi Dahan turned and was absolutely pummelled by a shocking two footed challenge from Rayos of Macabbi.

Seriously, this is one of the worst tackles we have ever seen. Might be an idea to watch this through your fingers.

To add insult to horrific injury, Rafi Dahan was due to be married in three weeks and will most likely now have to postpone it. Macabre Haifa anyone?
