Kung Fu soccer kick to head is a sure red card

Holding up a red card for this Kung Fu kick to the head on a soccer pitch was a no-brainer for this referee. Taras Stepanenko's blatant foul (Ukraine) on Moldova defender Vitaliy Bordiyan — in the final seconds of Tuesday night's World Cup qualifier — almost took the poor guy's head off.

In the 92nd minute, Stepanenko raced towards the ball for a challenge and let loose with a high-flying kick to his opponent's jaw.

Ukraine picked up the 2-1 home win, but not until Danish ref Kenn Hansen raised a red card for the shocking foul.

Maybe Stepanenko should trade the pitch for the octagon.
