Australian goalkeeper Mitchell Langerak doesn't bother with the ball as he takes the man out.

On the day that a Vietnamese international was banned for 28 matches for a violent lunge at an opponent, Australian goalkeeper Mitchell Langerak will probably walk away – unlike his unfortunate opponent – with nothing more than a slap on the wrist for this dreadful challenge.

However, when one looks at his challenge during the ‘friendly’ international against Ecuador, he can consider himself fortunate to escape without a lengthy ban.
