PLAYERS: Sami Khedira

Real Madrid's Sami Khedira scored the winning goal with his face in a friendly match against Santos Laguna on Sunday night in Las Vegas.


If happened off of a Real Madrid corner kick in the second half as a shot was blocked by the Santos Laguna goalkeeper directly into Khedira's face and landed in the net.

Hey, if Khedira had to get hit in the face, at least he got a goal out of it.
