21 versions of the World Cup have been played and there have been many goals, figures, great matches and events that have marked history.
But there have also been scandals, strong moments and violent events that have also remained in the memory of the World Cups.
Here are the 3 most violent moments of the World Cups:
1- The Frenchman who collided with the German goalkeeper. One of the semifinals of the 1982 World Cup in Spain was played on July 8 between Federal Germany and France, a vibrant and exciting match, which ended 3-3 and in which the German team went to the final from the penalty spot.
However, the violent event of the game occurred with a clash between the German goalkeeper Harald Schumacher and the Gallic Patrick Battiston, who took the worst part, was unconscious and the referee did not even whistle for the foul.
2- A bite to the Uruguayan. In the 2014 World Cup in Brazil Italy and Uruguay faced each other in the group stage. In a duel between Giorgio Chiellini and Luis Suárez, the Uruguayan attacker bit his rival on the shoulder. The player suffered a harsh penalty, which left him without a World Cup and a few more games.
3- An orange spit. Germany and the Netherlands played a rough game in the knockout stages of the 1990 World Cup in Italy. And there was one match in particular that caught the eye: Frank Rijakkard, for the tulips, and Rudi Völler. The defender of the orange team spat the attacker, and later in the match, both were sent off.
