Javier hasn’t held back at all with this one. He has openly admitted that he tore open his anus during the match against Holland the other night.
Whilst making a last ditched tackle to deny Robben the opportunity to score the winning goal, Mascherano obviously stretched that little bit too far and tore his anus.
He went on to say:
“I thought I had slipped, I thought I wouldn’t make it, but I tore my anus on that move, the pain…it was terrible. I threw myself into it. I could have been sent off. It could have been a penalty but anyone could have done that, I had the luck to get there.”
Sounds f*cking horrible if you ask me!
Argentina then went on to win the semi-final in Sao Paulo on penalties after the game ended 0-0 after extra-time.
