Classic Football Assaults #3: Harald Schumacher Attacks Patrick Battiston, Referee Does Nothing

An all time classic and one that will live long in the memory, although not Battiston’s as he apparently remembers little of the assault due to the fact he was knocked unconscious and had lost three teeth. Quite how West German keeper Harald Schumacher was not even deemed to have fouled the French defender is baffling in the extreme. Below are two videos reporting the incident the first using Sean Connery as voice over the second in French.
