Over the weekend, a charity soccer match took place in Glasgow, Scotland. More than 60,000 people gathered in the crowd watching and cheering the biggest soccer players and celebrities in Europe. The proceeds of the match will benefit retired midfielder from Aston Villa Stiliyan Petrov who is currently suffering from leukemia.
One of the members of popular English-Irish boy band One Direction, Louis Tomlinson, played for the charity match, and during the second half, he took a really hard hit from professional soccer player Gabriel Agbonlahor, an English Footballer who plays as a striker and a winger for Aston Villa. Tomlinson went down pretty hard. Agbonlahor was only trying to steal the ball from him.
Tomlinson rolled on the ground for a little while before standing up, still limping a bit. He was applauded by the crowd, and he managed to go to the sidelines where he sort of fell down and started to puke. Watch the video from TMZ by clicking this link.
"It was one of those things, part of the game. I will make sure to talk to him and say sorry about the whole thing," said Agbonlahor.
Crazy One Direction fans were infuriated about the incident and started sending messages over at Twitter to Agbonlahor. One Direction is probably the biggest boy band these days. They made a documentary movie titled "This Is Us 3-D" which was released on Aug 29 in the U.S. It is currently being shown in over 70 countries worldwide.
Luckily for all One Direction fans, Tomlinson was not really hurt that much. So he should still be able to entertain them really good. Their upcoming third studio album called Midnight Memories is made available for pre-order on iTunes on Sept 9. It will be released on Nov 25 through Sony Music.
