The excruciating moment when a Bosnian soccer player was kicked between his legs, eventually losing one of his testicles, was captured on video during a game between FC Zrinjski Mostar and FC Sloga at the Bosnia and Herzegovina Cup.

During the game last month, FC Zrinjski Mostar's Marin Galic, 22, had the ball in his possession when he was tackled by a player from the other team.

The tackling player is seen sliding in to kick the ball away from Galic, but in the process hits the latter player in his crotch with the tip of his right boot.

Galic fell to the ground in agonizing pain and was unable to pick himself up. He had to be rushed to the hospital, and a surgery was performed on his injured testicles a few days later, the Sun reported.

While the operation went without problems, Galic had one of his testicles removed.

To add to his injury, his team did not manage to win against FC Sloga, and instead had to settle for a goalless tie.

However, this was not the first instance of a player’s private parts being damaged during a game. Australian rugby league player Haydn Peacock told French Footy in March 2016 how his penis was almost ripped off when he was playing for AS Carcassonne in France in 2015.

“When we played UTC the other week their centre pretty much ripped my d--- off,” Peacock said. “He made a tackle by reaching out and grabbing my d---… I took the ball off the scrum and made a half break, and their centre has come across from the inside and reached out in a last-ditch effort and has got a hold of my d--- with one hand and pulled me down.”

Peacock added he had not realized what had happened till half time when he checked on the extent of damage. However, Peacock was luckier than Galic in that he retained his penis and got away with just 11 stitches.
