All Anderson of Paraná was trying to do was clear the ball, but instead he managed to hit a lineswoman in the face, resulting in a short, slightly humoristic moment in the match between his club and Atletico GO in the second division in Brazil.

The female linesman had no chance of avoiding the clearance kick, hitting her straight in the face, as Rubinho wasn’t even looking where he was kicking, being chased down by an Atletico Goianiense player.

Anderson himself, for those who don’t remember, was a Brazilian international in the past (one cap in 2005) and spent five seasons in Europe with Benfica and Lyon, but his best years came around 10 years ago, playing for Corinthians from 2000 to 2005.
