Schumacher-Battiston Incident - 1982 World Cup Here's one of the worst fouls you'll ever see at a sporting event--and it went unpunished because none of the officials saw it. During a semifinal match at the 1982 World Cup soccer tournament in Spain. West German goalkeeper Toni Schumacher leveled France's Patrick Battiston with a reckless challenge moments after Battiston missed a terrific scoring opportunity. Apparently few people saw what had occurred as everyone's attention--including the referee's--was focused on the ball going wide of the West German goal. How badly was Battiston injured? The French player lost two teeth, suffered three cracked ribs, had damaged vertebrae, and was knocked unconscious! No foul was called on Schumacher. After a 3-3 deadlock, the West Germans won the game in a penalty shootout.
