Ariel Ortega head-butts Edwin van der Sar in 1998
When pint-sized Argentina striker Ariel Ortega head-butted lanky Dutchman Edwin van der Sar, it seemed to defy the laws of physics.
The episode occurred in the quarter-finals of the 1998 World Cup.
Ortega, known affectionately as The Little Donkey, took a dive in the Netherlands box, to which van der Sar reacted furiously.
The then Ajax keeper ran over to confront the Argentine, who stood up and somehow made contact with van der Sar's face.
Cue the obligatory collapse-to-the-ground-as-if-you've-been-shot routine and with that Ortega was shown the red card.
