[ANIMATED] Alex Morgan Knees New Zealand Goalie In The Face

Dean Martin used to sing Ain't That A Kick In The Head? but if you ask New Zealand's women's soccer goalkeeper Jenny Bindon, it actually was a knee. Moreover, it was the Seattle Sounders' Alex Morgan knee. Ouch.

Make the jump to see for yourself.

Man that looked like it hurt.

This wasn't the only run in (pun intended) that Kiwi goalie had with the U.S. on Friday, also taking a boot to the face as well. Then to add insult to all of Jenny Bindon's likely injuries, the U.S. Women's team took the Kiwi's out handedly with a 2-0 victory. Not a memorable day for Bindon and her squad to say the least.
