With just minutes to go in a goalless contest, Iñíguez stumbled as he charged towards Erbez and ended up tackling him with his head.

Although Iñíguez got to the ball first, seconds later Erbez' foot connected with his face, knocking out three of Iñíguez's teeth.

To add insult to injury, the referee booked the 19-year-old for his challenge.
