Topless Italian Soccer Player Headbutts Fully Dressed British Coach

Tottenham Hotspur traveled to Italy to face AC Milan in the UEFA equivalent of the Sweet Sixteen today. It was a chippy game which Tottenham won after Aaron Lennon broke away and assisted Peter Crouch on the game's lone goal with about 10 minutes left.

AC Milan's Zlatan Ibrahimovic put one in the net in the game's waning seconds, but he broke the rules, so it didn't count. Which is probably what led teammate Gennaro Gattuso to headbutt a chap named Joe Jordan afterwards. Though it didn't have anywhere near the strength with which Zinedine Zidane's dome drove into Marco Materazzi's chest, the UEFA site says Gattuso's suspended for the March 9 rematch in North London. With road goals as a tiebreaker, the Spurs are in good position to advance to the Elite Eight. If you care about such things.
